lights turn night to day off southeast coast 3-7-98 ......

I have lived in Florida for over 30 years. This is why I say the lights that myself and many,many others seen on 3-7-1998 was no missile launch.... With a missile launch comes a smoke trail. Anyone that has seen the shuttle or any other launch knows this.

I have thought of this night for several years. Tonight I did some resurch to see if anyone else reported these lights. It has made me believe I should tell what I saw.

I was at sebastian inlet on the south side jetty doing some fishing.I seen mostly the same as everyone else. The sky only had a few clouds in it.these clouds could be seen clearly due to the moon was high and bright.I came to notice the lights in the sky due to the fact they turned night into day...These where large white lights, Not like the flames of a rocket...As well as they appeared in the sky, Not launching from the ocean.. As I stated I was fishing,[There was nothing blocking my view}.. To me the lights seem to be almost conected as if part of one object. These lights seemed to be several miles off the coast of sebastian..These lights overpowered the moons light. I would clearly say these lights where brighter then a night time shuttle launch as well. They did not seem to move at all.Just stayed in one place,not moving like rocket..No sounds at all.The only sounds was of everyone on the jetty trying to figure out what it was..No rumble sounds like a rocket,no flames,no smoke. It seemed to me when the lights where going out they { Rolled Up }..They did not turn out..This is when it seemed to be one object to me. The way it just seened to roll up as if it was turning to the southeast..This is when things got loud. Several fighter jet {I would say comming Patrick Air Force Base} where not wasting any time heading in the direction where it the was..I had counted two groups of around 12 planes.. They where moving very fast, Yet I could see the flames coming from the jets.The planes came back by about 30 to 40 minutes later..This time flying much slower..I remimber people joking that they didn't get there in time,Or seen what it was and ran...The only naval operations I believe took place was to try to get a look at the object or odjects..Why would you send US jets to a test sight if they where launching missles? There is a no fly zone every time they have a launch at KSC...My farther was in the navy for over 25 years.I grew up in a navy life style I have see many launchs in my 36 years of life...This was no launch...This object I would say was the biggest thing I ever seen in the sky ...This is something my friend and me tells everyone we know..
