Sighting Reports 2009

Fiery Dome Shaped Object Seen in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: March 5, 2009
Time of Sighting: Between 11 PM & Midnight EST
Location of Sighting: Plant City, Florida (Few Miles East of Tampa)

Description: I was driving through Plant City on I-95 before mile marker 184 when I saw out the sky something that had a trail of fire and looked like a booster with a fiery spaceship falling off the sky. When it got closer the fire at the end tail turned off and you could see a dome shaped object with like a tail of fire round object behind. We thought it would fall off toward the earth and all of sudden it just floated away and hid behind a cloud. A lot of cars were parked on the side of I-95 and were watching this event. We were in awe. We could not imagine what it was, but it was really amazing to watch. There was no sound come from this object and everyone that parked along I-95 saw this. Will someone let me know what this is?

Note: The report is somewhat confusing to interpret. The witness states that he was driving on I-95 and passing through Plant City. According to the maps I-95 does not go by Plant City. The map shows that I-4 passes through Plant City. I-95 passes through eastern Florida and in a north-south direction. Also the witness did not indicate what state that his sighting occurred. Through Google Earth I determined that the likely state was Florida. (There is also a Plant City in Alabama.) The witness's has not responded to additional questions. The report sounds like a rocket launch, but I don't know if any rockets were launched on March 5, 2009. Certainly this area is close the Cape Canaveral Rocket Launch facility.
