Duration: 5-10 minues
|Bright white round light in south Ocala night sky,remained stationary and quickly faded out only to reappear again.
While sitting on the back porch looking at the night sky I noticed a very bright white round object In the sky. It wasnít high enough to be a star or planet. I intently studied its position in the sky and it remained stationary.
After a few minutes, the light quickly became small and disappeared from sight only to appear again about 2 minutes later in the same location. It did that a few mores times and then quickly disappeared for good.
I took pictures and they show a round circular object that had an outside ring with a circular object inside of it. The photo also showed round white orbs in the lower corner which I donít recall even seeing at the time.
((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))
You are right about it being Venus. I took a picture tonight of Venus in western sky and it had the same ring affect in picture. Thank You for your explanation. ((name deleted))
