The witness was in northern Hillsborough County on a June evening in either 1993 or 1994 at the age of 13 or 14 when the incident occurred.
“It was about 9 p.m.,” the witness stated. “It was dark and I took my dog out. I was standing in my yard on the north side of my house. North of my house is a field with power lines and to the northeast of that, a lake.”
The witness looked beyond the lake and noticed a solid black object in the sky.
