Reported: 11/13/2000 21:57
Posted: 12/2/2000
Location: Fort Myers, FL
Shape: Oval
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
This object was oval in shape, and apeared to be covered in hundreds or thousands of white lights. It literally glistened in the darkening sky. The object was huge, about the size of a baseball at arms length. It appeared to be at least ten thousand feet altitude at 45 degrees. It was not the moon, as the full moon was visable during the sighting. The object followed the I-75 corrider through Fort Myers on the west coast of Florida. I was west of the object looking east. It became visable to me over the southeast portion of town and then it moved slowly north for about one minute. I tried to reason this sighting as possibly a blimp. But then it disapeared completely and reappeared roughly 5 miles north in less than 10 seconds. It continued moving north slowly about four more minutes and faded in the distance behind cloud cover. It appeared to be headed towards the Sarasota and Tampa area. This object had to be sighted by many other people. It looked like a well lit condominium building flying through the sky.
