Location: Orlando, FL
Shape: Flash
Duration:~45 minutes
Large flashing light in the sky,directly over head that lasted at least 45 minutes.

At approx 0300 hrs on the morning of May 28, 2013, while at work, I received a phone call from a co-worker (we both work at a local theme park) urging me and my other co-worker to meet them at their location as he was witnessing a flashing light in the sky.

We packed up our tools and hurried over to their location.when we arrived there,both the co-worker who had called me and his co-worker were both staring straight up at the sky. I then, along with my co-worker, looked up in the same area of the sky and witnessed a flashing light that appeared to be clouded in mist.

There were no clouds in the sky and we could see the moon and the stars. The object appeared to be about the size of the moon at times, had an amber color to the flash and at times appeared to have a blue color as well. The flash continued for approximately 45 mins getting progressively faint until it was no longer visible.

I must note that there are large search lights stationed at the entrance to the theme park which remain on all night.At 1st we thought that perhaps the lights were illuminating something in the sky as they scanned that region (where the lights seemed to converge) but then we noticed that the flashing did not really follow the same timing as the search lights.

At times the object appeared to be football shaped. It also appeared to me as if it were a beacon flashing in mist. Being that this object was directly above us,we ruled out any radio antennas. There was no other clearly definable shapes over head such as a blimp or helicopter.The object did not make any sound.We also pointed a laser pen at it's location.When we did this it appeared to move as the flash would emanate from a different location thatn before.

In total there were 4 witnesses to this event. I did call a friend of mine who was in another location of the theme park and asked her to go outside and see if she could see it.She said that she only saw the flash once.
