|bright green light sphere with orange/amber circle, emitting 5 additional lights off the coast of St. George Island, Fl
On Wednesday, 15 Oct, 2014 myself and one other witnessed a bright green light sphere with a slender orange/amber circle far in the distance and high in the eastern night sky off the coast of St. George Island, FL in the Gulf of Mexico. We had rented a beach front home in the Plantation area, which is at the west end of the island. We noticed the light around 11:00PM EDT. There is virtually no light pollution at St. George Island, and it was very clear that night with plenty of stars and you could see the Milky Way Galaxy clearly. The light did not move or flicker at all and was present for over 2 hrs. We went to bed around 1:00 AM and the light was still in the exact same spot; no change.
The next night (Thursday, 16 Oct, 2014) we were sitting on the front deck of the house around 10:00 PM EDT with our family members (total of 5), when we noticed the same light that we saw on Wednesday, but only the light had moved from the east to the west/south west. Again, way off in the distance and high in the sky over the ocean. We watched the light for a while, and then all of a sudden 5 additional lights lit up one at a time in 2 second intervals until all were lit. They were in a straight vertical pattern from right to left of the main object; the 5 lights were equal distance apart, stationary and didn’t move and were crystal clear/bright. They were slightly smaller than the main object/light.
The 5 additional lights were bright orange/red, but the main light was green with a slender orange/red circle. Once all 5 additional lights were lit they stayed on for 15 to 20 seconds and then went dark at the same time, while the main object/light stayed lit and did not move. Then approximately 3 to 5 minutes later the exact same thing/pattern happened again. In total it did this 3 times and on the 3rd time the 5 lights and main light went dark at the exact same time and didn’t not appear again, just vanished.
We stayed at the Island until Saturday, 18 Oct 2014, but we did not see the object(s) and/or light(s) again.
