The witness was on the balcony of a cruise ship cabin at 1:30 a.m. on August 17, 2018.
“Noticed a helicopter, then birds,” the witness stated. “We then saw these white balls of light zigzagging in sky, sometimes together in unison, other times separately in different directions. They went straight from sky into water and would just reappear back in sky even though we watched for them to come out. At one point they came together less than 100 feet in front of us, together side-by-side, still not moving, facing us. We felt they were looking at us. Then together they started slowly moving in straight line toward us. They came so close, we ran into the cabin, pulled the curtain and turned the lights out. We later found the courage to peep out of the sliding glass door but saw nothing. It was so scary. We were the only people we could see who were on the balcony because it was so late. We thought they would take us, and no one would know what had happened to us, or would have thought we fell overboard as we were on floor seven, I think. I later looked into how many people went missing on cruise ships and found it has happened many times.”
Florida MUFON Field Investigator David Toon closed this case as an Unknown-Other.
