Hello, This is Vicky from St. Petersburg, I talked just recently with you on the phone.

I looked into determining the wind direction in St. Pete. The winds are in fact blowing from NNW. However, I believe I reported the direction incorrectly in my original report as NE to SW. After looking more carefully at a map I realized that the objects were coming from the NNW so it is possible they are lanterns. I will call the FAA tomorrow to see if I can get wind speed data.

I apologize for my mistake, but like many women I'm a bit "direction-ally challenged."

Thanks so much, ((name deleted))
