|Triangle shaped light formation of Florida golf coast.
A large Light appeared off the golf coast looking north from Vanderbilt Beach towards Sanibel Island. It was redish white and it brightened enough to make a reflective streak across the water within seconds. It seemed to have been sitting there for a couple of minutes before it brightened and grabbed our attention.
It slowly started moving away from the coast and then out of nowhere streaked out of view at the horizon. Needless to say it was a jaw-dropping sight that grabbed our attention.
Less than a minute later there was a bright "ping" of light that came from the horizon in the same redish white hue. It seemed to signal the original light to come back. It's difficult to say how far this was happening away from us on the beach but if i had to guess i would say at least a mile away. My friend disagreed and claimed to have seen a rounded triangle solid object but i could not make out enough detail to verify.
As it moved across the sky slowly the object/light split in 3 objects and moved apart to form a triangle formation that moved in a way that kept the exact proportions of the triangle. Abruptly all three lights shot across the sky and disappeared. The acceleration and speed i could not guess but it was like nothing i've seen; hundred of miles per hour.
This whole process repeated a few times of reappearing and shooting off until it just stopped leaving me and my friend baffled and mystified by what was just witnessed.
My name is Daniel and my friend Brett was also there. It was the last night of a vacation and it was a very silent night with the exception of the event. Never before had i given much thought to people describing their "UFO" events until this had happened. I don't claim to know what i saw but i do know as much as i can that it wasn't man made.
