Location: Interstate 10, FL
Shape: Circle
Duration: seconds
4 females camped out on pensacola beach. played in water all the next day and left beach right at sunset. got on interstate 10 going west, we thought. at dark all of us noticed star sized objects moving erratically in sky. later a blue green glowing ball, not a "fireball", it seemed like a metallic glowing sphere, maybe a bit smaller than a basketball, sped across the interstate right in front of our windsheild. it was moving extremely fast, from left to right. 3 of us saw that. we then remember seeing what we thought was a brightly lit airport runway ending next to the interstate. we thought, well, its an airport. this did not seem odd to us until later. we then realized we were going the wrong way on the interstate, east instead of west, which seemed very odd because going east out of pensacola you have to cross a very long bridge. we are familiar with the area and it seems we would have noticed immediately that we were going the wrong way. it took a long time to get home to nashville. even considering that we had to take an alternate route it shouldn't have taken 15 hours to get from pensacola to nashville. also, i later remembered that when we saw the blue green ball i was in the back seat. when we noticed we were going the wrong way, i was in the front seat. i don't remember stopping. i moved to pensacola about a year later and was there for the big boom. also, sitting on the beach one day, in broad and bright daylight, 2 of us saw what looked like a gigantic roman candle zoom across the water in front of us and dissappear.
