Occurred : 4/29/2005 22:45 (Entered as : 04/29/2005 22:45)
Reported: 4/29/2005 8:05:20 PM 20:05
Posted: 5/11/2005
Location: Floral City, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 25-30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Triangular object traveling fast towards Tampa

I was out having a late night swim in the pool (weather conditions clear - no clouds or haze and temp at 73 degrees)when I noticed an object approaching from the north traveling south. At first glance I thought it was a passenger jet, but then realized it was way too low for the approach to Tampa Airport and absolutely silent. I watched it fly overhead - bright white lights at the 3 corners of the triangle and 1 blinking red light in the "belly." Traveling fast - at arm's length it would take a tennis ball to cover the object.

((NUFORC Note: We assume that the witness describes above the launch of a Titan IV missile out of Cape Canaveral, which occurred at 20:55 hrs. (Eastern) on this date. The missile apparently was launched to the northeast, so it was visible along the eastern shoreline of the U. S.. PD))
