|Stationary piercing bright light over Hunter's Crossing Publix drifted over Devil's Millhopper.
On September 15, 2004 at around 10:30 pm my friend was traveling west on Millhopper Road. There was no moon. It was a clear night right after hurricane Frances. She stopped at the stop light on Millhopper and 43rd street. She saw one piercing bright light about the size of a double pencil eraser(at arm's length) above the Publix store. It began to move at a steady speed in a straight line going NW. It stopped above the trees at the Devil's Millhopper non-public entrance. She lost sight at this point because she had to continue in traffic.
She estimated the speed of the light at about 20 mph. The height of the object was about two pine trees tall. The observation lasted about 8 minutes. She saw no other colored or non-colored lights and no shape or shadow behind the light. She heard no noise, felt no breeze, and no one else on the road seemed to notice it.
