Posted: 1/11/2005
Location: Sebring, FL
Shape: Circle
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright white light appeared in clear blue sky for about 30 seconds around 9 A.M.

I was driving my car in the parking lot at Sebring Square, leaving McDonald's restaurant. I saw a bright white light in the southern sky at about 40-45 degrees above the horizon. The sky was not cloudy. The light looked as if the sun's light was being reflected off a metal object. Had it been night time, I would have thought it was the planet Venus, because that's what it looked like. I only saw it for about 30 seconds. About 3-4 minutes later, I parked the car in the Fairmount Cinema Square parking lot, got out of the car and looked for the object. I could not see anything in the sky.
