An incident occurred in the sky above Eastover, South Carolina on August 30th, 2022, leaving witnesses perplexed and intrigued. The report, originally published on the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) website, describes a shiny cubic object with red lights floating just above tree-level. The event took place around 3:20 PM, while the witness was on a professional conference call on their back deck.
According to the report, the witness described the object as being cube-shaped and about the size of a 5-gallon bucket, roughly 300 feet (approximately 90 meters) away. The object exhibited a brilliant metallic shine, with intense red lights shimmering near the top of its cubic form. The peculiarity lies in the fact that these lights remained vibrant even under bright sunlight and against a backdrop of clear blue skies with a few scattered clouds.
The mysterious object was silent and hovered above the treetops, moving slowly northward. Witnesses noted that the object rotated on all its axes randomly. The duration of the sighting was brief, estimated at around five seconds, as the object swiftly passed behind trees, eluding the witness's sight. Attempting to capture this peculiar scene, the witness tried to open their phone's camera app, but the object had already vanished behind the trees.
Intrigued by the observation, the witness shared their discovery with a fellow engineer colleague they were on a professional call with. The colleague was informed about what the witness had seen in the Eastover sky. For the 52-year-old witness, this unusual experience marks an unprecedented event, as they had never before witnessed such a phenomenon.
While skywatchers and UFO enthusiasts continue to speculate about the nature of this unusual object, the mystery remains. The enigma hovers over the glowing cube that briefly captivated attention above the Eastover skies, adding an additional chapter to the mysteries of the starry sky.
