Duration:3-5 min.
Stationary, rectangular object seen in north-central Florida.

I was driving west on SW 20th Street in Ocala, Florida at around 7:30 PM. There was still daylight and the sky was blue. I happened to glance up through the front windshield and saw an object in the sky which grabbed my attention. At the first instant, I thought to be looking at a plane since there is an airport in the area. Also, the end of the object nearest to me had a strobe light; the other end had a red light.

It was then that I noticed the object was stationary, not moving in the air, i.e. hovering. The object was approximately 200 feet above me and continued to remain stationary. From the ground, the object was about the length of my index finger. It was black, rectangular in shape, silent, and had no wings. Part of the rectangular end with the red light had a “missing” space shaped like part of a circular radius.

I continued to stare at the object to make sure of what was being seen, but then had to return to watching the road. The traffic light at the approaching intersection turned red (SW 20th & SW 60th) and I stepped out of my car to get another look at the object, but there was no sign of the object neither from looking directly above me nor to the horizon.

This is my second report of a sighting since living in north central Florida. My first sighting was on March 2, 2006 and is posted on Case ID: 841. I’ve never seen anything unusual in the sky that could be termed a “UFO,” until 3/2/06 at age 53. Thanks for reading.
