I was walking on Siesta Beach just after sunset on 1/19/2013 less than halfway between the Terrace and the first lifeguard stand and I noticed an orange glowing object coming up out of the water at about 30ft. from the shore. It ascended into the air and hovered in one spot at a low altitude then proceeded to move slowly to the right in a straight line or due north. I took a couple of pics and wondered if anyone else was seeing it like I was. There was a guy standing a few feet from me and was watching me trying to zoom in for a closer pic of something in the sky but it seems like no one else was paying attention. When I tried to take the last shot the object disappeared into the clouds and all I got was what I thought were dark clouds. But when I hit auto fix on my photo editor you can see traces of the object behind the cloud. I wish I would have been more prepared for this event because I could have shot it on video. But it seemed like I was in a dream state and the event was much longer than the short time span of the shots taken.
