Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Size unknown due to distance and night cover. All were circular lights, like globes, orange in color except for one time where one changed color as noted above.
Size of Object(s)
At 10-12 miles away, the objects fit inbetween my fingers at approx 1/4 inch apart.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Distance to objects approx 10-12 miles, height unknown but typical height of aircraft flight.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Atlantic ocean, viewed from an aircraft carrier.
Full Description & Details
During a training exercise in the Navy Jacksonville operating area, a night time evolution placed myself and a few others on the outboard side of the 09 level of our carrier's island. The group of 4 of us began to view bright orange lights/globes show up off in the distance, then dissapear. The lights would float for a while before dissapearing.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I had a hard time believing footage of similar sightings before. I had a neutral view on UFO's but was not sold on the whole idea.
This is something I would blow off if I saw a video of it. However, seeing with my own eyes raises a burning question as to what we actually saw that night.
