Sighting Reports 2009

Woman Sees Slow Moving Red Light in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: March 16, 2009
Time of Sighting: 8:30 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Riverview, Florida (Few Miles Southeast of Tampa Bay)

Description: I saw a red light in the night sky at 8:30 PM. The light stayed in the sky in one spot for several minutes then moved slow toward the east. I watched it for at least 15-20 minutes.

Note: This light was likely from a weather balloon which was launched from Tampa Bay around 8 PM EDT. The winds in the lower atmosphere were from the west. This fact makes the movement of the light consistent with what the witness observed. Lights are tied onto the tether of weather balloons so that they can be tracked at night.
