Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The object was round like a soft ball and seemed about the same size from the distance we were from it. it had the apearance of fire around it the flames like toungs licking up around the ball then shooting upward above it before fading out. It was about the same brightness as a camp fire and about the same colors with mostly orange, yellow and red.
Size of Object(s)
At first it apeared to be the size of a golf ball if held at arms lenth. the second time when it hovered above it apeared to be the size of a soft ball at arms lenth. I would guess from the fire and knowing how fast flames travel the actual size to be about 40 to 50 feet across and round.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Bear Lake is about one mile wide from north to south and is about 15 miles north of Orlando Florida. It was at that time mostly residental with some near by shopping centers about 2 miles away.
Full Description & Details
To start with I was sober and with 3 other people who were also sober or I would never have told anyone of this experance. We were living in a lake front house and often went out to the middle of the lake at any hour of day or night just to park and be romantic with my roommate Larry and his girl, and my now current wife Kristen. This night I noticed a strange light that apeared as a flaming ball, orange and red with flames licking upward then like toungs of fire vanishing over the ball. It was moving from west to east and was to the north of us , how far away we could only estamate by the upward speed of the flames. It apeared to be about 500 feet up traveling at about 50 miles per houre and aproxamatly 1000 feet from where we were parked in our 12 foot sears fishing boat.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Not a chance
at the time of the sighting my wife and child hood sweetheart was 18 and just graduated high school I was a contractor at the age of 22. we were renting a house on the lake I grew up on just 7 doors down.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I would have thought you were crazy if you told me you saw what I saw or you were fibbing. Now I beleve in some stories and am more open minded to accept the fact that there are other beings exploring the universe and even our planet on occasion, but still do not beleve all sightings to be true.
I wish I had a camera that night, and would like to see a picture of the same thing if anyone else has such a photo. or even hear of the same sighting experance from other eye witnesses.
Reported To:I told some close friends only when one of the other witness were there to support the sighting
