Location of Sighting: Citra, Florida
Date of Sighting: January 1, 2017
Time of Sighting: 7 PM EST
Description: I saw something similar and it freaked me out. There were 2 lights that were orange and it seemed like maybe a giant plane with lights on the wing tips. It was very dark so all I could see were the lights. I realized it wasn’t a plane when the lights separated and took off extremely fast. There was absolutely no noise coming from what I had seen. As soon as I walked out and saw it and realized I didn’t know what I was looking at, I ran back in the house and asked a family member to come out and tell me what it was. My husband and family member both came out and saw it and was shocked. None of us could explain what we had seen. In total, I watched the lights for 5 to 10 minutes.
My sighting was this New Year’s Day, 1/1/17 at approximately 7:00 PM in Citra, FL (Marion County). We were in an area called Dupree Island between Highway 316 & NE 175 St (Pine Church Rd). The lights were very close, over a swampy area when I first saw them, but were higher when everyone came out. They were still close enough for everyone to see clearly. What a memorable New Year’s Day! I don’t think any of us will ever forget it.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
