I too live near Florence and was traveling through Camden when I heard of some type of explosion on (i think)Monday night over the ham radio I have in my car. We discussed it for a while and the first responders seemed to have been informed that it was a sonic boom from night time exercises. Apparently the noise was heard all throughout the area and it was quite intense.
It's not the strangest thing I've ever heard of around that area. Several years back I was Riding with a couple of family members and we saw a series of high intensity lights lining up in the sky and hovering for a moment before all going out at once. Then doing it again all the way down at the horizon.
Interesting times. That's why I enjoy watching the night sky!
I did not realize we had so many South Carolinians on ATS, I smell a conspiricy.
My mom used to run one of the fire towers they used to use to spot forest fires. My brothers and I would spend hours watching the night sky. We have seen some pretty unusual things as well.
