|Bright orange balls of light flying in formation fading and reapearing over the water.
The other night me and some guys from my church decided that we were going to ride out bikes out to the old fort Pickens camp grounds on the island of Pensacola Fl. It was very late around 12:45am to 1:00am and their were no lights. Me and my friends had run out of navigate able road(the road was ruined in hurricane Ivan a few years ago.). We had stopped for a break to drink a little water and rest for a few minuets, "just enjoy the wind." My two friends were facing to the west towards the fort and the darkness and I was a little ahead of them; only by a few feet. I was facing to the east in the direction of the part of the beach that has the tall buildings and bright lights. We were taking and suddenly my breath was taken away by 8 to 12 bright orange lights maybe 7-10 miles (truly guessing) away. I can say in all confidence that they were off over the water away from the resorts.
I stared at them as they shifted and danced in the sky. They were perfectly spherical. They started to dim and I realized that they were going to fade completely so I yelled. I mean I just yelled and pointed. By the time that my two friends had turned around the last two faded out and they did not see them. I tried to explain it to them and when they turned around to ask if I was high(Iv never done any drugs I am completely clean). I was trying to explain what I had seen when the lights reappeared and I pointed again they seemed closer and one more time they disappeared from sight just as they turned to see them. And then a third time they appeared in the same place as the first time just as intense and in the same nature they shifted their formation. This time one of my friends turn and saw them and he too was dumb struck. They all shifted north together and two by two faded while moving north(with the wind).
That was the last we saw of them only two of the three of saw them and we didn’t see them or anything else strange. We made it to the end of the island and then turned back because there was no where to spend the night. We saw nothing else out of the ordinary. Oh and it seems important to let you know that the lights were completely silent. Or rather we heard nothing at all when they were in the sky. In retrospect I remember complete silence, but I was shell shock… well anyway thank you for your time.
