Location: Ocala, FL
Shape: Circle
Duration:5-10 minues
Bright white round light in south Ocala night sky,remained stationary and quickly faded out only to reappear again.

While sitting on the back porch looking at the night sky I noticed a very bright white round object In the sky. It wasn’t high enough to be a star or planet. I intently studied its position in the sky and it remained stationary.

After a few minutes, the light quickly became small and disappeared from sight only to appear again about 2 minutes later in the same location. It did that a few mores times and then quickly disappeared for good.

I took pictures and they show a round circular object that had an outside ring with a circular object inside of it. The photo also showed round white orbs in the lower corner which I don’t recall even seeing at the time.


((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))

You are right about it being Venus. I took a picture tonight of Venus in western sky and it had the same ring affect in picture. Thank You for your explanation. ((name deleted))
