|Two bright circle lights seen in West Palm Beach, Florida.
I saw two balls of light, which I commonly describe them as headlight-sized to others. One light was higher than the second light, and to the left of it. The lights were headlight-sized from my vantage point, but were incredibly high. Because of my perception of height, I had judged the lights to be much larger than any aircraft known to man, possibly being hundreds of feet in diameter. I did not observe any contrails or vapors eminating from the lights. The time of day was beginning to turn to twilight and the skies were blue. I was driving eastbound on Forest Hill Blvd and first witnessed them around the intersection of Jog Rd. At first, the lights appeared to be static, just staying in one place. Then, the lights appeared to begin to rise slowly upward and began to fade in intensity. The lights then disappeared, but there was an incredibly large hazy halo left behind for each light. The lights were gone before I reached the intersection of Military Trail. For weeks afterward, I tried to find further information on this incident. I did recall some online articles trying to discount it as military missiles, which from experience could not have been fired from Cape Canaveral. I think the article went on to say that it was ship fired missiles and another article said they were missiles fired over the Florida Panhandle from one side to the other side. Problem being, that I did not witness any East, West, North, or South movement of the lights. I did not witness any vapors or contrails. The only thing those lights did was appear to remain static at a great height, then rise straight up. My life experience is U.S. Military and Law Enforcement.
