We live in Spring Hill Florida, The sighting occurred about 7:15 on Jan 21st 2012. ((woman's name deleted)) my wife was sitting in the front enjoying the warm weather and talking on the phone with a friend. It was a very clear night with no clouds in the sky.

I came outside sat down and looked up and saw a fire ball in the sky over the tree line, traveling in a slightly northeast direction coming from the Gulf. The craft at first site looked like a meteor or an asteroid, or something of the sort. This thing was huge, and headed towards our direction, then I saw the other one appear, not as close that came into view rising above the tree line. The images and video provided give no justice to what we originally saw because it was the tail end after the account and fly by.

I was stunned, shocked and frozen in awe. While frozen I started to think this is no meteor or asteroid, I also thought could this be a plane on fire going to crash. I decided to rush in and get Sam my daughter out of the shower, because I was very uncertain what I saw and worried.

I scrambled to find my video camera, could not find it and grabbed my digital camera instead.

Once I got back outside they were already over the house and at a much higher altitude. I started snapping pictures of it with my digital camera. ((daughter's name deleted)), my daughter started videotaping with her camera on video mode. The images look like dots, sorry best I could do.

((name deleted again)) my wife, has a very good account as they flew over when I was inside scrambling for my camera, she was outside the whole time. My best guess, the size of the object was at least 5000 square feet round, there were two of them and they were silent, and made no noise whatsoever. The objects were round, burning fire in the middle and glowing orange red around the parameter circling the burning center. These objects were very bright.

I will personally never doubt anyone who claims they saw something. Unfortunately, by the time I got my camera they were already over the house at a much higher altitude. Also, I was smoking, so you can see this in some of the pictures. Had I not been in such shock I would have not hesitated so long to grab something to record the incident sooner.

((wife's)) Account Jan 21st 2012 around 7:11 pm at night I saw something in the sky that was not any aircraft, like a helicopter, airplane, jet etc. It had glowing fire in the middle and reddish orange colored lights surrounding the object. The lights were circular and the whole thing glowed like an asteroid you see in the movies. The objects were big and there were two objects in the sky. Through the whole incident I was completely stunned and seemed to be emotionless.

The first one came above the tree line across the street above my neighbor’s house then a second one followed. They were flying low when they appeared then flew over our house. As the object flew over I saw the fire in the middle and orange redish colored lights that seemed to be rotating while looking at them directly above me.

As soon they passed over they speed up and started ascending much higher. The craft looked like fire in the sky. At that time ((name deleted)) and ((name deleted)) came outside with their camera's and started taking pictures and video.
