Silver metallic oval-shaped object seen over I-4 in Tampa, Florida on 09/27/2008 in daylight

On this day of September 27th, 2008, at approximately 11:30 a.m. located in Florida (around the Tampa area) I was driving westbound on I-4 towards the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. I was around exit 14 when suddenly a seemingly stationary silver, metallic, oval-shaped object caught my eye out of the left side of my peripheral view. I focused on it for what could have been no longer than about 10 to 15 seconds before it suddenly vanished before my very eyes. Before the object in the sky vanished, I started to ask my fiancé if she had seen it as well. Before I could finish, she immediately confirmed that she did also.

After the first sighting of this object, my fiancé and I continued to search the sky in that general area. When about no more that 20 seconds later, the object seemed to appear in the same direction as before, but it appeared smaller or further away. (I have no way of knowing the distance between the two sightings) This second occurrence seemed to last around 10 to 15 seconds and was again stationary, when it suddenly vanished while I was viewing it.

I the fiancé, of the first reportee was sitting in the passenger seat when out of the left side I witnessed a silver, metallic, oval-shaped object for approximately 10-15 seconds. I saw the object move slightly towards the left and then more so towards the right very briefly, then I saw it vanish. After a few seconds of conversation with my fiancé (without eye contact because I was searching for the object in the sky…) I continued to look in that general area in the sky and witnessed the object for a second time after about 20 seconds or so. This time I saw the object of what seemed to be a further distance, however this time I saw no movement before it vanished and only lasted about 10-15 seconds.

Confirming… I too, saw these objects in the sky on September 27, 2008 at approximately 11:30 a.m. in Florida (near the Tampa area) heading westbound on I-4 driving towards the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
