Bright lights hover over Mississippi coast
A witness in Pass Christian, Mississippi, took a video of a double lighted object hovering over the Gulf of Mexico this week.
The unidentified witness reported that the object hovered about a mile off shore for several minutes before it appeared to slowly descend into the water. The video was posted on February 12, 2012.
Possible explanations include a sky lantern, though the intensity of the lights and apparent distance makes it a more interesting sighting.
The FL-AL-MS gulf coast has a history of similar over water sightings.
The witness' account:
This was taken after we had seen what looked like a craft that appeared to be landing inland somewhere. We tried to stop the car in time to get it as it seemed to hover and slowly move towards the ground.
Then it blinked out.
When we did get the car stopped, we got this one doing the same thing over the Gulf.
It sat there for 3 or 4 minutes before I started filming it. We also checked to see if there were any aircraft flying at that time, and there were none.
