Two of us decided to talk on the beach on a blanket. I took a spring vacation trip to the Holiday Inn on Pensacola Beach on Santa Rosa Island; I went with a sorority....I was one of the elected male "sponsors", a sort of big brother while a senior in high school. So it was very structured and organized and chaperoned. We were chatting and I had been in the habit of looking for and spotting satellites. I saw a light travelling straight for the beach (north) I would say it was high, it was about a little bit smaller than Venus, traveling in a straight line at a constant velocity faster than any plane or jet
i had ever seen. Then when it was overhead, it turned 90��West for a short distance with no change in velocity and then again, with no change in velocity, made another 90��turn south, where it had come from. At all times it travelled in straight lines at the same constant, faster than a private plane or known jet; it was a brilliant white light in the sky above Pensacola Beach in the spring of 1970.
