3 BRIGHT STAR/LIGHT Object of Varying Colors Seen Over Pinellas Beaches /Tampa Bay, Florida

Sunday 9th September 2007 8:10 pm St.Petersburg,Florida 33705 At about 8:10 pm I had noticed for the 3rd night in a week a bright star/light like object in the sky over the Gulf Beaches (St.Petersburg,Madeira, Treasure Island ) area. The object appeared to be a bright star/light and would change colors from red, white and greenish blue. This was a very fast color change that took place. If you had blinked you would have almost missed it .

The object had appreard to sit idle for sometime in the sky as if were waiting for direction . While sitting idle hoovering in the western sky over the gulf of mexico, it would dim and then just about fade out completely and then become super brilliant in color , always maintaining a star/light like shape or visual appearance to the naked eye. Its movements were not what one would think an airplane could do almost zig zagged at times and seemed to disperse a very faint light like flare or a spark if you will , sent out in any direction.

After a few minutes I telephoned a friend who had witnessed the same type of star/light like object a week prior to what I was observing at the moment and had for the past 3 nights . I asked her to describe what her and her daughter had seen in the skys over Clearwater the week prior because I was watching an object that was very similiar in nature to what they had witnessed. (Clearwater is About 30 minutes from St.Petersburg.) She described that same light pattern , Star/light like appearance of the object and the same idle and cruising pattern as I had observed and the movements of the object, we talked for almost ten minutes about the object as they searched the sky south west of their home for what was being described to them .

The object began to pick up speed and was out of my eye range in seconds (blocked by a ten story building) as it headed east north east over towards Tampa Bay . Just then I spotted a second Star/light like object with the same pattern of lights, movement and flight path as the first. This object appeared out of no where just like the first had .

My friends couldnt see much due to the Clouds over their area. I wished them a good night and would keep them posted as to what was observed at night . I ended the call and researched on the pc about any sightings in this area or across the state of florida this month or the month prior . Your site had come up on the search and here is my post.

I observed a 3rd object just as typing this post was nearing an end .

The object my friend had witnessed was reported to be in the AM some time around 4:30 am - 5:30 am . The objects that were witnessed by myself appeared between 8:00pm - 9:00pm .

Hopefully others have seen these objects and will have similiar accounts to tell .

Best Wishes, Spotted in St.Petersburg
