Duration:30 minutes
Flashing lights that quickly moved across the sky, appeared and reappeared, took off from the ground

My friends and I were driving late at night on state road 60 to Tampa and saw a formation of three orange lights in the sky. It flashed brightly and then disappeared, only to quickly reappear across the sky.

Then suddenly there were three of the same formations which flashed three times each and then disappeared.

Several miles down the road, the lights continued the pattern of reappearing and disappearing at different places in the sky and at one point looked as if they were heading our way.

The last sighting of the formations was when the sky lit up and the objects took off from the ground into the sky and disappeared.

We called the sheriffs office and were told that "testing" was being done in the area, but we were not convinced.
