2004 : Tampa, Florida

Tampa, Florida Rectangular UFO The Size Of a Football Field Or More

Hello, I was searching on the internet for reports of a UFO that I saw in Tampa around 2004, and I ran into an article on your website that seemed to match very closely to the time and description of what I saw. Here's the article:

Personally, I am interested in contacting this witness, because they said they had some drawings. Do you know how I can contact this person? I didn't see an address anywhere. Also, I would be interested in posting an attached witness account to this, or a very similar sighting.

I only saw one craft, but it was hovering very low, just above the tree-line, so I got a very close 5 minute look at it from my yard. It was going very slow. I really thought it was a blimp at first but the more I looked at it, there were no markings or cabin etc. It was very odd and was completely neon with 2 or 3 alternating colors. It was also about the size of a Football field or more and was in a rectangular shape with rounded corners. In a way, it looked like a lot of inner tubes within each other. That is why I thought it was a blimp, especially since it was glowing neon colors.

However, it would seem that someone would use this as an advertisement since it was so bright and glowing. There was no cabin or basket so it must have been helium or something, if it was a balloon, and thus unlikely that it was uninhabited by people. That's why I was baffled that there were no advertisements or markings. It seemed to serve no purpose unless it was a designed hoax. It was too magnificent, bright and large for someone not to want credit or use it to their advantage for ads. The more I stared at it, the stranger it looked. It finally went over the trees and I couldn't see it anymore. By this time, I was compelled to jump in my car and follow it, but I decided against it. Now I wish I did. ha!

Well, that's all for now. I look forward to your response! Have a Great day!

Thank you to the witness for their report.
