Floridians are no strangers to strangeness, having found themselves the butt of a continued national joke at their expense, stemming from the plethora of bizarre and embarrassing news stories that emanate from the Sunshine State.
This week was no different, although instead of hearing about the exploits of the ubiquitously eccentric “Florida Man”, folks in Daytona Beach found themselves staring at something unexplainable in the night sky.
A puzzling piece of footage out of Florida features a cluster of curious orbs hovering in the sky as a pair of bewildered witnesses try to make sense of what they are seeing. The intriguing sighting reportedly occurred this past Saturday evening in the city of Daytona Beach as an unnamed man and his wife were standing out on their balcony and noticed something unusual off in the distance. “We observed lights hovering in the sky, in a V shape formation,” he recalled, while noting that the anomalies “were glowing and would turn off and on, reappearing elsewhere in the sky.” Fortunately, the witness managed to capture footage of the baffling sight as it was unfolding before their eyes.
The clip was stunning.
In the video, two balls of light can be seen in the sky, when a third orb briefly joins them to form a triangular shape before the initial pair of illuminated spheres disappear. This proverbial show continues until a fourth light appears alongside the group. As the man describes what he is filming, his wife theorizes that the UFOs could be related to “something for Memorial Day weekend.” Eventually, the lights seem to drift apart and the footage comes to an end without any answers as to what the anomalies were. In reporting their sighting, the man mused that “I am a retired 30 year police officer and have served in two branches of the military. I know what I saw and have never seen anything like this before.”
There have been some more terrestrial explanations bandied about in the case, but you can judge for yourself in the video below:
