|Two stationary lights off Fort Lauderdale
I was sitting at restaurant on Fort Lauderdale Beach facing the ocean and saw a stationary white orb over the ocean. It appeared to be far out to sea. (Eight or ten miles or more.) At first I assumed it to be an approaching aircraft but it did't move at all which drew my attention.
It was completely stationary, which is impossible even for a helicopter. It was absolutely stationary for about 10 minutes, then another orb appeared as if it were a light being turned on. The second orb was identical to the first and appeared to the right and slightly higher than the first. They both remained completely stationary in relation to the surface of ocean and to each other.
No way these were stars. It was still light out and slightly hazy and the objects were slightly above the ocean.
There were literally thousands of people in and around the beach so others must have seen it. I took a picture with a hi res SLR camera but the lights were so far out to sea that they look like two white dots then moved on. A short time later I looked again but the lights were gone.
This is the second time I have seen something weird in the sky. The first was in 1986 or 1987 and that was a completely different object. Wondering if anyone else on the beach saw these objects.
