Perhaps a Large Cloaked Craft in Winter Haven

Saturday, September 20th around 9:30 PM, Winter Haven Florida Partly cloudy to the west (Light wispy clouds) with a full cloud bank moving in from the west ... Looking overhead, we were right on the edge between the two.

Wife & I were out walking the dog when we both noticed a distortion or wave in the sky overhead. Neither of us was looking up at the time but is was so large & distinct, we caught it out of our peripheral vision.

Looking up we see 15+ faint lights in a perfect bow or arc shape approximately 2000ft up & almost directly overhead ... All the light were very dim but perfectly equal distant from each other. The total distance of the arc from end to end was 300+ feet and making absolutely no sound at all.

We watched it as it moved towards the south for approx 4 to 5 secs ... I would estimate it moved a couple of miles in that time ... And at that point, the lights just disappeared ... Not that it had moved so far that we couldn't have seen them ... But the lights just seemed to be blocked from our view once it moved out that far.

Total time of the sighting was no more than 10 seconds.

Above is what we seen as best I can describe ... The rest is pure speculation on my part.

I believe what we seen was some type of a cloaked craft ... As I stated all we could really make out when we looked up were these faint lights ... But I believe what we were seeing was just the leading edge of a larger craft (Most likely circular in shape) ... And I say this because the distortion we first notice was large & round'ish in shape ... I would describe it as what you would see if you were looking at a still pool of water and then throwing a rock into it ... Undulating waves. But by the time we looked up that distortion had cleared and all we could make out at that point was this large faint arc of lights.

Secondly, as this thing moved to the point where the light just seemed to disappear. I believe what happened was that as it moved to the south our viewing angle changed so we were now looking at the back of this craft ... And our view of the back was blocking our view of those leading edge lights.
