|Flickering light in Tampa, FL
I was walking my dog in my backyard which has some woods about 20 feet from my back door. It was around 9:00 p.m. and I looked up at the sky toward the North. I saw about two planes and then saw a whitish/yellowish big light that was flickering and was definitely too low and big to be an airplane. It was not moving in the sky, just flickering. No noise was heard, as it was not THAT close. I watched it for about 30 seconds then called my friend to come see. By the time he got there (about 30 seconds later), the big light had faded out slowly and risen in the sky. It was now a lot higher and looked like an airplane high in the sky with a red light flashing. We watched as it flew away to the West at the speed of a regular plane. I KNOW that could not have been an airplane, as it was stationary at one point and it rose very high in a matter of seconds.
