Location: McAlpin, FL, USA

Shape: Unknown
Characteristics: Lights on object

Silent orange rotating light over McAlpin, Florida field.

At this time, I was home alone with 3 small children which had been put to bed. We had 5 outside dogs that began barking up a storm. There was a large fenced pasture behind and adjacent to our property, with a tree-lined driveway leading toward and then turning to parallel this pasture. I went out of my front door and rounded the corner of the house facing the pasture and didn't see anything. I saw the dogs sitting side by side and barking in the direction of the pasture. I walked closer and past the dogs (who did not move forward with me). I thought it odd that the dogs did not come with me to investigate. When I had moved a few steps closer to the pasture, I saw a large orange light that seemed to be slowly rotating the circumference of an object. The object itself, I could not see againt the night sky. The light seemed to move from right to left, disappear momentarily as if on the back side of the object, and re-emerge on the right again. I also noticed that the object itself seemed to be silently moving in a forward, downward and zig-zagging motion (closer to my property). I ran back into the house and locked the doors. I called my husband who was bowling with friends, and he scoffed as I explained what I had seen. I was terrified, and realizing he wasn't going to come home immediately as I had hoped, I instead called a friend long distance, and stayed on the phone with her for well over an hour until he did arrive home. I did not report the sighting to any authorities for fear of ridicule.


Witness indicates that the date of the event is approximate. PD
