|July 6, 2007 Aboard the Carnival Liberty, Atlantic Ocean South of Florida Keys, Observed three round blue/green objects.
This sighting occurred while returning from a cruise aboard the Carnival Liberty on the night of July 6th at approx. 11 pm. Our location was 10 to 20 miles south of the Florida Keys.
My son and I were stargazing on a forward (starboard side) deck when my son spotted a round, blue/green light traveling towards us from an East/ Northeast direction. By the time I saw the object it was directly overhead traveling at a very high and constant rate of speed. It disappeared behind the upper decks of the ship just a few seconds after I spotted it. I can’t put a number on the size of the object because it was impossible to gage its distance from us – it may have been as close as a half mile to as much as 10 miles or more away from us.
Ten minutes after the initial sighting, my son and I spotted two more round faint blue/green colored objects, traveling in line with each other in a west/southwest direction until they seemed to turn suddenly to a southeast direction and disappear. These objects were due south of the ship and looked to be traveling only a 1/2 mile or so above the water.
