Name Janet G
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks We thought it was fireworks. Seemed so close and so big. Had an arc landing and disappeared . Looked like a birdie from a badmitton game! haha We were heading to the marina on davis island so we assume may have landed in the old Hillsborough bay off bayshore. There were other sightings It was beautiful. My 11 year old son and I both saw it while waiting at a red light and looking up.
