|Bright white objects in night sky seen in SW Florida
While watching tv, I turned my head towards my husband and a bright white light caught my eye. The curtains were open to the kitchen window, since I really wanted to see for sure what my husband and neighbor had seen on the fourth while outside watching the neighborhood fireworks. The city display had exploded out on Lover's Key shortly before.
It was much brighter than the moon and had no craters, which I look at through my telescope. It moved slowly from north to the south. Seemed to be a football shape. I made a picture of what I remember, but have no way to post it, a watercolor painting. I almost always have something to say, but didn't even say anything to him til after.
A couple weeks later saw 2 of same further away in SW sky, at first thought they were strange stars which looked out of place, I was going to check them with my star chart, until I realized they "backed off" out of sight, like they caught me looking at them.
I felt they came because of the Lover's Key incident, and keep an eye on things.
