White Cross composed of 4 lights down and three across over my home in St. Petersburg Florida

I have had numerous sightings with witnesses in my life, even a close encounter one with a witness one without. I'm aware many have trouble believing this especially if they themselves have never seen anything. I'm glad there has alway's been soemone next to me! I have had less then a hand full of occasions in my life actual telepathic communication involving a sighting and other encounters.

On this particular night I was sitting in my living room and all of a sudden heard the words "Eric ! Come out side we have something to show you !" I told my two Son's to get their shoes on as we need to go out side and see a UFO ! they did so did I.

I for what ever reason knew right where to look exactly I don't know how I knew this, I told the boys one 16 at the time the other 14 to look right up there and watch.

My youngest Son for some reason walked back toward the house and looked up at the sky and toward the home away from the scene.

Suddenly four huge round lights proceeded to turn on all straight down then three across turned on, it was sort of like a flicker as it came on i.e. a florescent light that is aging . The lights were the size of a nickel held out at arms length possibly a dime. They made no sound.

My Son watched it just as it was happening and we both had drawn exactly what we saw when we returned to go inside. Then all of a sudden this light which was the shape of a thumb nail and the same size at arms length had illuminated directly to the left of this cross just as it has illuminated completely ! This light was about one finger size length away from the cross to the left of the object and it was very bright as if a old style blue flash cube had went off ! Just then the cross began to shut its lights off just as fast as it turned them on in different order . My Son for what ever reason did not see this part happen, he may have looked down, however I never looked away and saw everything ! The Cross was in the Eastern sky and almost directly overhead of my home. The color of the circle shaped lights was white and it was perfectly inline and appeared to be in space , though I really do not have any reference to go by at the time, only that this is what it looked like. I would assume if this was a craft it would have to be miles long ! and left us with a sense of Aw ! This cross was filmed by a Gentleman in South St. Petersburg on the same night as I heard about it on the radio, he has refused to release the video from what I heard. He said he was standing out front drinking beer with friends as it appeared and he happened to have his camcorder. I had a one plus a digital camera but did not have time to get them out of the box on the ground and did not want to take my eyes off of the cross as it had just finished lighting up and I was waiting for what it would do when the light next to it forced it to shut down .

I had immediately walked back up to the house and as I reached the steps I was hit with a really bad feeling as I felt much disbar about what happened as if the feeling was sent down to me,. What I felt like. there was panic where the cross was and just then a second telepathic message came. As I walked up my steps I stopped and heard "Eric, we just cannot return until this has been resolved " I remember distinctly hearing my name again as the first word.

I am still today trying to figure out the meaning of this and why it was shown to us or me, and since it has happened I have not seen or heard anything.

* I have no photo, although my Son is good with programs and he did a photo shop reconstruction and it is perfectly accurate.
