Gulf coast off bradenton florida, 1971ish. i was out in the gulf swimming, about 100 yds from the shore (the tree line was right on the beach, the beach wasn’t wide there}, clear sunny day, flat water, not many people around. i looked back to the shore and saw 3 gold balls in the sky over the treeline. no real idea of their size, but they weren’t tiny at all. they were shiny, not glowing with light, more like a gold christmas tree ball.The 3 balls were darting around, back and forth, up and down, for maybe 20 seconds. i watched them in wonder! then as one, they came together and formed a slightly bigger gold ball, which then zoomed up at a sharp angle and was gone. this is the first time i have told this officially. not much but i know what i saw and feel really lucky to have seen them!!!
