Object Flight Path
I was driving east on I 275 into Tampa from St. Pete at appx 5pm and saw in a clear blue sky a dark smoky looking arrow shape behind it was a smoky blur behind that was a dark perfect smoke circle. Looked as if an arrow had been shot thru a circle leaving a smoke smudge after it passed thru the circle. While bringing it to the attn. of passenger noted another line appearing more as a drawn circle line forming behind the former perfect circle which had begun to lose symmetry in shape. Circles continued to form as previous circles began to lose shape. Each circle formed one behind the next in a row. Circles formed slower than any aircraft could fly as traffic was at a rush hour crawl for appx 30 minutes while observing. One circle was a double formation, like one ring slightly elevated above the other. There was no other smoke or clouds in the sky. It did not seem to have a ground source. There were at last count a total of 8 circles formed until passed beyond the circles parallel south of vehicle and lost sight of circles while driving east. Did note 2 small nodule like forms opposite each other in circle diameter. One was dark and tiny bump and the other sometime had a red-orange color and was slightly larger of the two. Objects were too tiny to be any kind of plane. Too high to be model planes. Could they have been drones from military base in Tampa? I do not know. I did find a few photos very similar online identified as mystery circles on news and paranormal sites. I don't know what it was but never seen anything like it before in my 50+ years. Very odd.
