Path with directional change
Relaxing on back porch, son spoted a very bright glow coming across our area of observation. Quickly ran into house, retrieved binoculars to observe object. Object moved in straight flight path estimated at 15000 ft, moving at an extremely fast pace. This object easily traveled 10-15 miles in less than 30 seconds. Because of the time lost in retrieving Bino's I could not get a clear view. In about 5-10 minutes max another object same as above again traveled across same flight path. With Bino's in hand I observed a sphere shaped object that had 5 seperate bright orange glow sections. Again object was in view less than 30 seconds, could not believe the intensity of the bright orange glow this aircraft emitted. Finally once again a third aircraft flew over the same flight path, probable 8-10 minutes from last sighting. The object as viewed with Bino's was exactly as second craft. This craft however once banked East at a very prononced pitch, then was out of my vision. My house lies in the flight path of incoming aircraft to Tampa Int. Airport. No civilian A/C flew during these incounters. I waited outside an additionally 30 minutes and began observing civilian A/C once again flying into Tampa, which I could also hear, which is is common because of there reduced altitude. There is no doubt these object where observed at both Tampa Int. and MacDill AFB. As a 20 year US Army Special Forces soldier I have observed no object that matched this sighting to include B1 and B2 bombers, assorted fast movers, NASA shuttle launches and having witnessed scud & MLRS missile projectiles in the 1st Gulf War. This event was very unusual and worth noting.
