|Bright White Light appearing over Sarasota
My boyfriend (Sales Manager) and I(((deleted)) Specialist) were walking to our car after leaving PetSmart. We were facing east.
Both of us were looking at the sky, at a pair of contrails that were running north/south parallel to each other.
He jokingly said "Look, UFO trails."
As soon as the words came out of his mouth, a faint white light started appearing between the two contrails, looking like it was flickering on kind of like the flicker of a fluorescent bulb.
I thought it was the first star of the evening, but was proved wrong when the light grew steadily brighter. It grew into a bigger, intensely bright white light and shone like that for about 3 seconds.
Then, the light flickered again and it was gone. No trace of it.
There were no contrails coming off of it, it was too far away to tell if there was any sound, and there were no blinking lights like on an airplane or helicopter. It just disappeared.
We were facing East, and I would say that it appeared to be over I-75 or a little farther east of the interstate. It was really high up in the sky with the contrails, so, I'm guessing it was at airplane altitude.
At this point in the evening, the sun had set behind the building we were in front of.
