With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

Departure Direction: NE
Witness Direction: East
Description: For YEARS I've made it a point to watch the Perseid Meteor showers. My husband and kids always enjoyed it, as well.
I am a new Floridian and used to watching the showers in Northern New England but found out the best place to watch in my new location. My husband and teenagers couldn't be bothered to watch with me this year so unfortunatley, I have no witnesses!
I positioned myself on my back deck on a lounge chair (with plenty of bug spray) at around 9PM looking to the NE sky. I saw quite a few "showers" and a couple of very bright meteors. The sky was very clear and I watched many "dots" ascend and descend (aircraft). I then noticed 3 planes in a triangle pattern move across the sky at the same time. At first, I believed they were just the busy jetliners that fly in and out of Orlando but thought it odd that they stayed in the same formation. I then began to think that it had to be military because the formation was just to perfect to be three commercial planes. Patrick Air Force Base is about 25 miles north of me so I believed it must be that. I watched as this triangle moved across the sky from south to north, in a staight sideways pattern, completely in formation. I would have continued to believe it was military in nature had it not just STOPPED and stayed stationary. I called my husband and daughter out to look at the three (lights) in a triangle pattern. They thought I was crazy and that it was just three stars in the sky. I watched those three "stars" move across the sky and STOP, and stay!
I stayed outside watching for as long as I could keep my eyes open and the bug juice could hold up. I gave up at about 11:00 and saw nothing else. The three lights in the sky were still in the same place. They didn't move with the earths rotation like the rest of the stars~! I visually marked the location of the three lights, as well as all the other stars in the sky with the big pine tree in my neighbors yard at the skyline. It never changed.
It's a little cloudy out tonight but I'm going to go back outside and see what I can see. If nothing else, it will hopefully be a good meteor shower.
I have never believed in UFO's.. what happened last night has really freaked me out.
