Shape: Light
Duration:60 seconds
White light flies into brighter white light and both go straight up.

In the early evening, just after dark. A friend and I were sitting in the cockpit of my sailboat at a marina in St Augustine, Fl., just having a general conversation. We were sitting across from each other facing East. My friend stated "Did you see what I just saw". I said what exactly did you see. We compared stories.

What we saw was a "very bright star" high in the ESE sky. (Out over the Atlantic Ocean}. It was a white light similiar to the brighness of the planet Venus and was just sitting there. Suddenly we noticed a smaller white light coming from the 4 o'clock position and it was very fast it went straight into the brighter light. After maybe a few seconds the brighter light {with the smaller light} went straight up and out of sight. We are both convinced to this day that this was a UFO as it did something we didn't think regular aircraft could do. It was a first sighting for both of us.
