Posted: 3/13/2012
Location: Panama City Beach, FL
Shape: Unknown
Duration: continues
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Lighted object moving in unusual patterns, unlike any aircraft.

When first observed the sky was crystal clear. This lighted object moves erratically in every direction sometimes in a straight line other times rather pendulously, appears to sit relatively still then will dart or make slight movements. Initially thought it was an airplane as we are near an international airport as well as 2 Air Force Bases and a Navy Base. It can be obscured by clouds so it does not appear to be reflective such as a laser light.

As we were looking at the lighted object 2 other people from the community walked by. I asked if they would look at the light in the sky and tell me what they observe, they described exactly what we had. It is currently 11:47 p.m. and the sky is becoming hazy but the object continues its behavior.

My daughter has observed a similar appearance more than once. One time she observed 2 objects very near one another.
