A Line Of 6 Red/Orange Lights Over Palm Harbor Florida

Date:  January 1, 2012
Time:  12:37 a.m.
At 12:37 a.m. on 01/01/2012 I observed a line of red/orange lights approximately 6 of them just south of Dunedin Causeway. Filmed on cell phone for 5 minutest before they were gone. No sound could be heard.
I am a professional mariner and in my 40+years on the open ocean, I have never seen anything like this!

  1. At approx. the same time on 1/1/12 from Jacksonville Beach looking south I saw approx. 6 similar red-orange lights head straight out over the ocean (east) and disappear over the horizon. They were spaced a minute or two apart on the same path flying somewhat low. It looked like military jets with afterburners from a distance but where moving too slow. It didn't look like airplane lights which aren't usually as bright as this especially when flying perpendicular to to your vantage point. I suspected missile testing.

    WOW!! WE so saw these lastnight and none of us could explain this either!! My girlfriend first pointed them out.. but they were so far away that I dismissed the first 3 as planes. Then we had fireworks going off over our head and looked up again! Amber in color.. zoomed in and out.. then two disappeared and the third hung out for awhile as I would call it. I have seen a lot of things in my life but NEVER seen this or the colors!

  3. We saw it too. Approximately at 12:30am 01/01/12 we were outside watching the fireworks and saw a line of bright orange lights that appeared for about 5 minutes and then just dissapeared. Then once they disappeared, an owl flew right over our house. All I cotos think of was the movie "the fourth kind" and we were freaking out. I had never seen anything like this in my life. Bu the way this was in West Palm Beach, Fl.

  4. i'm from st. augustine florida and i witnessed the same glowing ball of light at appx 11:20 pm on dec 31 2012. me and my friends were bringing in the new year and one of my friends said look at the fire in the sky but we ignored him but he kept saying it so we went to look and before my eyes was a big fiery ball of light i then told my friend to record the moment
