In the late 1990s, I believe it was in the early spring, I was driving to work around 5:30 a.m. from Venice, Florida to North Port, Florida. I was on a lonely stretch of road and suddenly saw what I thought were car headlights pull out from the right-hand side of the road. I thought it was odd, because there were no roads or driveways along that stretch of Rt. 41. In my rear-view mirror I watched the light "following" me near the right rear of my car, but close to the edge of the road. I noticed at that time that there was only one light and it was rather small, probably only a couple of feet in diameter, but appeared very close. It was also not quite as clear as a headlight, more amber colored than clear.
It followed on the right rear of me for several miles, bouncing about as if to miss shrubbery on the side of the road. I could see the orb in my passenger side mirror, but not in my rear-view mirror or driver's side mirror. My radio or lights were not affected and I heard no noise from this orb. It continued "bouncing" along and following me for approximately five miles until I turned down the road where I worked and it disappeared.
I only told a few people about the little ball of light, but then in October of 2004, I was once again driving to work, but this time it was after Hurricane Charlie and I had to commute to Estero, Florida, which was about 45 miles from my home in Venice. This was also around 5:30 a.m. and I was driving south on Interstate 75 just before the Peace River Bridge.
Suddenly, there was what looked to be the body of a large airplane flying just over the treetops on my left. I did not see any wings, but it was lit up enough to see this large object clearly. I thought it was an airplane in distress and was about to crash because it was so low to the ground and went past me very fast. I looked in the rear view mirror and was expecting to hear a loud crash and see smoke, flames or other evidence of a crash, but I saw nothing. It seemed to have vanished after it passed by. I heard no noise when it passed. It was just fast and silent and disappeared as fast as it appeared.
That next night, coming home around 11:30 p.m., I had a co-worker with me. We were travelling north on Interstate 75 a few miles south of Punta Gorda, Florida. We both observed a round light in the sky. This time it looked like it was quite a distance away. It remained stationary as we watched it for several minutes and suddenly it also vanished. We did not see it move; it was there and then it was gone.
Since that time, I have come to believe that we do have visitors from other planets in different places at different times.
