I was vacationing in Fort Myers a couple of weeks ago and experienced something very strange. It's almost embarrassing to ask about because it seems a little "out there."
My friend and I was sitting on the balcony of our condo around 11pm and a huge orange globe appeared over top of us. It was totally silent and "hovered" around 2-3 minutes before taking off at a high rate of speed. It traveled west across the gulf and into space, (it appeared to travel around 45 degrees). The entire incident lasted about 7-8 minutes. I have never experienced anything like this before and it scared my friend so much he ran back into the condo. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like this in the Fort Myers area? The incident occurred July 9th and I am sure someone had to have seen this.
I have been vacationing in Fort Myers over the last several years and this was a first. To answer any questions - no, I wasn't drinking, smoking or anything of the sort!
*Edit: This occurred in Fort Meyers Beach - didn't realize there was a separate forum and will post there. Thanks.Edited: 9:02 pm, July 20, 2013
