ON MY WAY HOME I SAW A GLOWING SPHERE WITH A FIREY TRAIL, MUCH LIKE A COMET, EXCEPT THAT IT DIDN'T APPEAR TO MOVE.

WHILE DRIVING ON THE 206 BRIDGE IN ST. AUGUSTINE,FLORIDA, I LOOKED LEFT (SOUTH) AND SAW A GLOWING WHITE LIGHT WITH TRAILING FIRE.

AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT LOOKED LIKE A COMET, BUT IT REMAINED STATIONARY WITH STREAKS OF FLAMES, SO TO SPEAK, COMING OUT OF THE LOWER RIGHT SIDE OF THE GLOWING OBJECT.

IN AN INSTANT THE FLAMES STOPPED, IT REMAINED GLOWING FOR AN INSTANT, THEN LOST IT'S GLOW AND LOOKED LIKE ANY SMALL AIRCRAFT, AS IT'S LIGHT LOOKED NORMAL, EXCEPT THAT I DIDN'T SEE AND STROBE LIGHTS OF ANY KIND LIKE YOU WOULD SEE IN A REGULAR AIRCRAFT.

IT APPEARED TO TURN TO THE SOUTH FROM WHAT SEEMED LIKE AN EASTERLY HEADING, THEN TREES OBSTRUCTED MY VIEW AND I NEVER SAW IT AGAIN.

THERE IS A BRIDGE OPERATOR IN A SMALL TOWER 24 HOURS A DAY ON THAT BRIDGE. I WONDER IF HE EVER SEES SUCH THINGS?
