Was something strange in the sky over Apalachicola on Saturday, February 9?

The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) published a reported UFO sighting submitted by a witness who listed Apalachicola as his or her location. The following report submitted the same evening as the sighting allegedly occurred,

“(I) was in my backyard with my dog. Looking toward the front of my house, I saw a bright orangish light, moving at a fairly fast clip in a northwesterly direction. Thinking the object seemed strange I went to the front of my house to get a better view. There I saw another orangish light moving in line with the first.

“At this point, I called to my partner in the house and she came out and saw the lights, as well. Another 2 lights followed behind these lights. The lights seemed to be evenly spaced. I watched as the lights quickly went from being very bright to being tiny and then disappearing completely. This all happened within perhaps three to four minutes, perhaps less.”

Herman Bell, chief of Public affairs for the 325 Fighter Wing said Tyndall Air Force Base  did not have any aircraft scheduled in this area on Saturday evening.

A woman named “Darlene,” who described herself as a resident of Carrabelle Beach, posted a comment about the above report online through MUFON on Monday, stating that she and her husband had also seen the lights on Feb. 9.

“He had just come home from going to town and was yelling for me to come out to see the "strange" lights,” she wrote.. We never saw anything like it before. Would be interesting to find out what it was.”
