Location: Punta Gorda, FL
Shape: Light
Duration:4 min
Pulsating light traveling steady with abrupt change of course, and accelerating outward suddenly

The event was on april 3, 2010. About 12 pm.

My grandson and I were staying in my sailboat, located in Punta Gorda Fl. I had him take the front bunk in the catamaran which has an opening hatch over the bunk. He commented to me, that he could clearly see the stars as he lay there and we then we said good night.

Shortly after this, he claims he was watching a large reddish, pulsating object progressing northward and wondered if it might be a satellite, but thought is was too big. He claimed it to be as big as a silver dollar if held at arms length.

About this time, the pulsating light took a sudden turn downward and made a figure S and then shot upward very, quickly upward and out of sight. The event only lasted a few minutes. I was told the story when we got up in the morning.
