|Two flashing lights seen over Indian Rocks Beach, Florida.
I was outside my house sitting on the porch at night, when I noticed a red-and-white flashing light flying from left to right in the sky. At first I thought it was an airplane with the landing lights on (hence the flashing red and white lights), but then I noticed that the pauses in between the flashes were unusually long, and there was no illumination of the object in between the flashes (this was different then all of the other aircraft I have seen before). After realizing this, I turned on my iPod Touch to try to take a video of the object. My sighting of the first object lasted for about 45 seconds Interestingly, several seconds after the first object was blocked by the palm tree, I spotted a second object traveling in the opposite direction, with the same flashing light and approximate size as the first object. The second object traveled from right to left, for about 30 seconds, until it appeared to slow down slightly, decrease in altitude for a few seconds, and then disappear (most likely behind a cloud). Including the time in between my observation of the two objects, the entire sighting lasted about 1 minute and 30 seconds.
I would like to note that while there were other aircraft in the vicinity of the UFOs, I was not able to estimate how far away they were (as I did not know how far away the UFOs were, or how big the UFOs were).
Note for investigator: Look in the accompanying e-mails for screenshots from the video, as well as the original video.
