I am wondering if anyone reported the sighting of any UFO, December 29, 2013, at approximately 6:20 p.m. I was jogging in my neighborhood in Prestancia on Palmer Ranch.

I suddenly saw 6 different hot air balloon looking fireballs in the air. I have attached a picture of two as by the time I could take a picture of the others they moved out of my camera range.

At first I thought that they might be hot air balloons as I could see fire beneath them. The problem was that if they were hot air balloons the fire would likely make the balloons rise but would not send them on a horizontal trajectory.

I did call the local balloon company here in Sarasota and they confirmed that they did not have any night flights and that it would be highly unlikely that any pilots would fly at night.

Interesting, what did I see?
