Location: Tampa, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:Aircraft activities over
prior to the football game between Iowa&Florida several aircraft flew over the stadium. four military jets, four doublewinger aircraft, and one single commerical small jet. There was also a military sky jumper involved in the before game activities. I was home at my apartment approximatly less than a mile from the stadium. The aircrafts noise alert me, and I grabbed my Nikon 10X50 6 degree glasses to get a better view of the action. It was during the sky jumper that I notice the UFO. It was triangle shape with sparking flashing lights at each tip. It flew North, and was visible just barely due to heavy clouds in his area of flight only. The other activites aircrafts where performing in perfect VFR condition for viewing.

I am 71 years old, retired after 34 years with the Department of the Army. This is my first UFO report, ever. I have never witnessed such an aircraft configuration as the one I just reported. The bright lights at each tip appeared as sparking.

PS I care you're wondering because of the New Year, I don't drink.
