UFO sighting in Jacksonville, Florida, and I’m not crazy!

stars

Let me say first of all that I don’t wear a tin foil hat, think Elvis is still alive, or that we didn’t walk on the moon. I’m an avid outdoors person, and I’ve hiked all over the United States. I’ve never seen anything like what I saw this afternoon. I don’t know what it was, and I’ve wracked my brain trying to come up with a plausible explanation. I was hiking with my father and son at Timicuan Preserve, a sunny, beautiful day in North Florida.

Here’s what we saw:

A single point of light that looked like a star. In fact that’s what my ten-year old called our attention to. He said “look, it’s a star in the middle of the day.” We stared at it. Just above and below that bright light were two dimmer objects, grayish against the blue sky. These then moved, and a third dim object appeared, and they formed a triangle around the bright point of light. After a minute or so, three more objects showed up out of nowhere, seeming to circle that point of light. The light itself was not moving relative to the trees around us. We observed these things for about ten minutes until a cloud obscured our view. When the clouds passed, the objects were gone.

We spent the remainder of the day speculating on what we’d seen, going through the usual suspects that might explain the odd event. If it was a weather balloon, then what the heck were the smaller objects? If the bright light was airplane, then why didn’t it move? If it was a group of helicopters, number one, how were they at such a great altitude, and number two, what was the bright light? And also, what were they doing? If it was a satellite in geosynchronous orbit, then what were the smaller objects, and why did all of them disappear? If it was a drone, then what was it doing, and again, what were the other aircraft? They definitely weren’t birds; birds neither move nor look like what we saw. They weren’t flairs fired from a military craft. The bright light never moved, and the dimmer objects weren’t bright enough, and also remained visible for longer than flairs would have.

I’ve never seen anything like that before, but it certainly made for an interesting hike! If anyone has theories that explain what I saw, I’d love to hear them.

  1. I’m not into UFO’s. I do have a  DVD collection that includes every X-File episode.  And all the episode guide books. What is simply remarkable about this post is that I could click on the Objects book cover and go to the book’s Amazon page.  Didn’t have to click on the blue link.   Didn’t get led to Amazon authors page.  I could click on the book cover and go there.  Haven’t been able to do that before.  Way to go!!!!!!!!!!!!  But why only Objects?

    • Hi, Carol.

      Thanks for corresponding; I’m not really into UFOs either! I generally like to post a link for Objects of Wrath in the hopes that people discover the book and want to read the other books in the series.
