NUFORC Sighting 135437

Occurred: 2017-06-23 09:23 Local
Reported: 2017-07-30 07:23 Pacific
Duration: ~3 minutes
No of observers: 4

Location: Tampa, FL, USA

Shape: Cigar

At 09:23, EDT, on Sunday, June 23rd, looking to the northwest out our front window, we saw a trailing edge of a thunderstorm moving from west to East over the city of Tampa, Fla.

Below that trailing edge, we noticed a bright silver, cigar-shaped UFO flying along the edge of the storm. The UFO had no lights, no noise, no wings, and no apparent signs of propulsion. It appeared to be approximately 2,500 to 3,000 feet above ground level, and although we could not determine its width because we could only see its port (left) side, the craft appeared to be about the length of two aircraft carriers.

The craft kept flying into and out of the storm clouds for about three minutes, then it came out of the clouds once more and flew off at a high rate of speed in a southwesterly direction, toward the Gulf of Mexico.

Due to the apparent distance and little time we could not get photos.
