|4 red lights over the Gulf
My friend and I were at the beach one night, playing guitar and smoking cigarettes as I usually do during the summer break in school, when we started talkig about UFO's and ghosts and such. I remeber he was telling me that a town right next to us, Dunedin, FL, had one of the highest recorded UFO sightings in Florida. I shrugged this off, and started strumming the guitar, looking out into the ocean. I was facing North West when I noticed 1 light far off into the distance, in the ocean. At first glance I thought it was a star or satellite, or even a plane. The sphere was barely a speck, red in color. This made me consider the fact of a plane even more, until I saw it turn. The turn was not a curved or graceful turn whatsoever, it was like the object shifted. It was at one spot one moment, and all of a sudden, it dropped a good distance, then shifted to the left immediately. I pointed this out to my friend, and we were both amazed. We watched this light and 3 others that joined it for a good half hour, sliding up, down, at sharp angles, almost as if they were following a line, instead of a curve. During that time, we saw one aircraft fly past, and the four red lights seemed to group together until it flew past their general area. It almost seemed like the four lights were playing with each other, chasing and being chased. Then, they started heading in a north, northeast direction, and kept going in that direction until they faded out of sight.
