Florida Water Object            

Siesta Beach
– I was walking just after sunset on January 19, 2013 [sic- MUFON CMS shows 01-09-2013], less than halfway between the Terrace and the first lifeguard stand, and I noticed an orange glowing object coming up out of the water at about 30 feet from the shore. It ascended into the air and hovered in one spot at a low altitude, then proceeded to move slowly due north in a straight line. I took a couple of pictures and wondered if anyone else saw it. There was a guy standing a few feet from me and was watching me shooting, but it seems like no one else was paying attention.        
   When I tried to take the last shot, the object disappeared into the clouds and all I got was what I thought were dark clouds. But when I hit auto fix on my photo editor, you can see traces of the object behind the cloud. I wish I would have been more prepared for this event because I could have shot it on video. But it seemed like I was in a dream state, and the event was much longer than the short time span of the shots taken. Thanks to MUFON CMS.
