Crescent shaped UFO grace the sky and head towards the moon on St. Pete Beach

Walking along the beach after my sweet 16 birthday party, it was around 2:45 - 3:00 in the morning. I was showing my friends my favorite star cluster, the Pleiades. Upon explaining why I like them so much, one of my four friends with me pointed at the sky and said, "Whoa, what is that?" We all looked quickly.

My best friend and I saw what we can only describe as a fast moving object in the shape of a half circle, with a little dip in the middle, flying towards the moon on the horizon. It was relatively far away, as if it was just gracing ((sic. Grazing)) our atmosphere, but it was still pretty big.

It was the color of the sky, which was black since it was nighttime, except a few shades lighter; so, like a blueish-grey.

It was moving fast, but slow in the same time; just very smoothly. It headed towards the moon, until finally it faded out.

My sister, and friend that pointed out the UFO, say they saw something with red lights that kind of looked like an airplane. However, they were under the influence of drugs that night, where as my best friend and I were not.

After seeing the UFO, I got a very happy and bubbly feeling in my chest. It was amazing! I will never forget that night.
