|Large Object Spotted Over Treeline
My friend provided me this picture and a description of the event several days ago.
Due to scheduling he has been unable to provide more details. I will provide the information he conveyed to me.
Apparently this happened while driving to work on US 441 in the city of Alachua, Florida, heading towards Gainesville Florida. It was on his right (he was driving) and in the vicinity of the Progress Center (an industrial park in the city of Alachua). He was the only person in the car.
The object is just above the tree line in the middle of the frame. He estimated the distance to the object at roughly 1/4 mile. Object was moving from right to left at a speed too high for a blimp...he indicated a high speed. Object altitude remained at tree line level during sighting. He estimated object to be as big as a football field.
He indicated he ran a check to see if any blimps were in the area that day, and could find no such indication.
Indicated no sounds.
I have not been able to confirm the time picture was taken....I will try to get more information and forward to you.
I'm assuming there is a good chance others might have seen the object.
