Absolutely Unreal. What looked like a star , proved to something much more interesting!!!!!

Me my girlfriend and roomate went down to the beach after sunset. We were watching the stars, when what appeared to just be a star hanging low right on the horixon, burst into a huge ball of yellow-orange light. The glow lasted approx 5 seconds and then dissolved right back to a star on the horizon. All three of us saw the same thing. Then the object shot across the horizon at an unreal speed. It seemed to almost teleport all the way across the horizon. It sat for a second and then shot about halfway back. It then abruptly stopped and began moving slow and smooth like a plane. At this point we were all absolutely speechless! As we began to discuss what might have just happened, I noticed the object looked like it might have been coming off the horizon. It made its way directly towards us. In under 45 sec. the object that was a dot on the horizon had so smoothly approached us within 1000 yds. off shore and was hovering at approx. 1000 ft. It was never possible to get a good visual of the object though, it was extremely errie that it was that close and we never were able to tell what it was. The light on it was a wide bright white glow, the glow was the only thing we could see. The object approached so gracefully, making just a slight hum, it was not a prop enging plane, it was not a jet engine plane, it was not a helecopter! After the object hovered over us for approx. 50 sec. it turned its light away from us and slowly headed back off to the horizon, yet still even from behind we were never able to get a visual on the object. All three of us were in complete shock, when the object began approaching, no one said a damn word untill it left! we all saw the same thing, and we all are convinced it was absolutely out of this world. My uncle was an F15 pilot for 25 years, growing up I was facinated will all aviation, I can tell you almost any jet that flys over the beach either en route to Mac Dill, Tampa or Clear/St.Pt. This experience leads me to believe that there is definetely some! thing somewhere with far better technology than ours. A brand new F22 went over a few days ago, he hit the after burners while going over and it shook the whole neighborhood, this new superjets speed was probably 1/1000th of the objects!! Anyway, This experience was unreal, I am a firm believer now that something else is out There. And then two days later, I see in the St Pete Times the Incident in Iran. An entire village observed an object in braod daylight. And now the March 5th video of the Mexican Air force, it was explained as balls of lightning, are you kidding they surrounded the jet!!! Nice try! Peace, and Keep your eyes on the sky!!
