Red and white blinking lights moving like satellites north to south nearly 20 different times.

Date 10/20/16 My name is ((name deleted)), I am 23 years old, I was formally a server trainee at ((restaurant name deleted)) until recently. I live in Gainesville, Florida, where these sightings take place.

Earlier this evening, at around 10:00 pm 10/19/16, I went outside to enjoy a cigarette and lurk at the stars. The sky was clear. Within 5 minutes of being outside I had seen what appeared to me as a satellite. It was blinking blue and white light and coming from the north heading south. It was completely silent and too far to be an airplane, also it was moving quite fast. It went from the north horizon to the south in a matter of about 2 minutes. I thought nothing of this, I was certain it was a satellite. I continued to watch the sky, just moments after the first object had disappeared into the distance, I became aware of another blinking light coming from the north heading south. This light was blinking red and white. It behaved similar to the first object I had seen. No sound, very distant, yet fast. Every blinking light I saw after this was red and white.

Things became stranger, as I layer out in my front lawn I kept seeing the same blinking object move from North to south like clock work. As soon as the light had become to distant to see I would without doubt expect to see it reappear in the north again, and it would. I saw what appeared to be the same object fly across the entire sky and reappear close to 20 times. Each time only taking about 2 minutes to go from one horizon to the other. Then a few minutes later would appear again.

At this point I was at disbelief. My niece who is 21 saw the object I was looking at and reassured me it was a satellite. I am convinced this is not the case. She was very uninterested. At a certain time during my observation I noticed not 1 but 2 blinking red and white lights within my sight. There were multiple objects all the same but there is without doubt no way these were in orbit. There is no way this was of human design. They would always start north and head south and as I observed it became hard to tell if they where traveling in a straight line or hovering freely. At one point I took my eyes off the object only to find that when I had looked back it actually had moved further back north in a matter of seconds. It had jumped from one area of the sky to the other. I know because it was going behind a tree then suddenly it was visible right above me again.

I continued to observe for a couple hours. Every time I walked outside I could find the blinking light coming from the north. However they stopped reappearing and it was surprising to me. I had seen the object nearly 20 times. It seemed around 1:30am the operating time for these machines came to an end.

It was hard to see anything besides just the blinking red and white light. It seemed as if at times the light would become dimmer or more vivid as it moved. Although I did capture some video evidence I was more focused on observing it with my own eyes. I managed to obtain 4 short videos of 4 different appearances of this object. In other words I would start recording every time I saw the light coming from the north on 4 separate occasions. All together I saw this event unfold before me a total of about 20 times.

After one too many cigarettes and mosquito bites I decided to write my report and end my observations. personally it seems there were far to many satellites to be satellites at all. And they reappeared to often to be in orbit.
