Location: Tallahassee (Williams and St. Joe Sts.,), FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration: five mins
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object emitted beams, The object changed color, The object made a sound
Mother and two children, twin boy and girl, were driving home from shopping and the son saw three lights, two orange/red at the base of the trailing edge and a blue white light at the leading point. The object was east of them going south, and then crossed over the highway as it made a sharp 90 degree turn to the east. The daughter thought she saw a green light when it went into the clouds. When they arrived home the father said that he saw a triagle with two orange/red lights and one blue one over the pond, which was just 80 yards away from the house. When it was over the pond it became four wlights in a diamond shape. It also emitted white beams, according to his testimony.

When dad whent out to turn on the hose the dogs were barking. He notice, directly over the pond, two orange red lights and a blue light at the point. It changed to four white lights. The pond was 80 yards away and his son, who he called to report this to, said that he reported beams of light coming from this diamond shaped object. However, the (step)dad said when the son called at 7:45 pm, that it was 6:30 pm EST that he went outside, yet he said when his wife and children came home and after they reported what they just saw down the road from the house, that he saw the same thing just "five" minutes ago, when actually it was 2 1/2 hours earlier. The object made a whoosh, whoosh sound as it crossed over the mother's car. There is a discrepancy in the time that he thinks he first saw this and the time that the family said they saw it, the dad thought it was just five minutes earlier. The son called me, MUFON of Hillsborough, Pinellas and Manatee counties from Tampa, to report this incident.
