Location: Sanford, FL
Shape: Circle
Duration: 1-2 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Perfect circle of yellow dots of light in the sky at approx 4pm that appeared then disappeared.

On Saturday, December 19, 2015, between 3 and 4 pm, I witnessed a circle of clear, distinct yellow lights appear in the sky and then disappear. I would explain it as if a light switch had been turned on and then off in the sky. The shape was a perfect circle.

I witnessed it from my vehicle, windows down. My two children were with me but did not see it, as it only appeared for a brief moment. We were pulling out of the Sanford Municipal Cemetery on 46A facing north - the object was in the northeastern sky. The sky was grey overcast yet clear with mild temperature. It was distinct.

My immediate thought was that the sight was strange, - I had never seen something like that in the sky, but then I dismissed the lights as having been either a firework or blown transformer. I mentioned to my 9-yr-old son that I saw the lights and he asked me if it looked like a "ferris wheel" - which is exactly what it reminded me of - but it didn't have "spokes&qu! ot; in the center, just the perfect dots of light. He said he had read about ferris wheel UFO's - I dismissed his statement. I am submitting this report today (approx 2wks later) because I have yet to figure out what I saw. There were no fireworks sounds at the time - and the circle was perfect, not oval, slanted, etc. I had never seen anything like this before.
