Location: New Symrna beach, FL
Shape: Formation
Duration:30 minutes
Formation of orbs daytime chased by fighter jets over beach in New Symrna Florida 1978.

On this day at 2:30 pm., a couple of friends of mine were walking to the beach on the board walk north of town to beach. When from space it seemed a formation of flashing light drop down in front of us and begain flashing. They looked orb like and moved from one side of the horizon to the other then back agian flashing hypnoticly and moving very fast. They were very many people watching as well from the beach.My friend and I were very shocked to see such a thing and were very elliated.

then about 15mn into this light show of flashing orbs we heard a sonic boom,we look to or right to see 2 jet fighters flying at mock speed to intercept these orbs. It was the first time I have seen a jet break the sound barrier!

As soon as the jets got close to these orbs they shot strate up into space where we saw three red lights in the form of a delta! The jets continued flying around in circles looking for the orbs.

the strange thing about this was lack of any coverage in the news but people talked about it in town for a while. Have never seen a report to date.
