Location: Pensacola, FL
Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 minute
a sphere shaped object hovered over us while on the beach. A police officer was heard reporting seeing something at the same time.

I was with 3 friends on the west in of Pensacola Beach in Ft. Pickens State Park when we saw a silver sphere shaped object with what looked like windows all the way around it. We were in a convertable so it was easily seen. It flew toward us then hovered about 100 ft (I don't judge distance well but it was close) over us. It was almost as if it was watching us or wanted us to see it. Then it suddenly flew away in the opposite direction. I can't remember because it was so long ago but it had lights inside that either dimmed when it hovered or dimmed when it flew away. We were teenagers and I never told my parents as I thought they'd think I was crazy, but one of the other witnesses told her mother. Her mother said she'd listened to a police scanner the night we saw it and heard a beach deputy come on the radio and state that he had also seen something. She said he made a comment about not believing what he saw so it was obvious that it was something very unusual.
