National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report

Reported: 9/21/2015 12:37:47 PM 12:37
Posted: 9/25/2015
Location: Santa Rosa Beach, FL
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 30 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
3 spheres appearing as a wheel with 6 spokes. White lights evenly spaced on wheel and spokes.

I saw three spherical objects appearing as the size of a dime from my perspective. I used my binoculars to confirm the spheres were not an optical illusion. One north at about a 60 degree angle and two north northeast, one at about a 55 degree angle, a third below it at about a 40 degree angle.

They seemed stationery (hovering?) I noticed 6 spokes. They looked like wheels with sparkling white lights on the wheels and spokes evenly spaced. The spokes seemed to protrude beyond the wheel. I think I saw flashes of blue from time to time.

Two major air force bases in the community make the possibility they are drones a distinct possibility. I did not bother to look long as they were not moving.

I am an 82 year old bird watcher and not prone to hysteria. I hold a masters degree in the humanities (theatre and philosophy).
