Sarasota UFO Challenges Its Witness
Billy Cox

A few more UFO sightings over Arcadia, Port Charlotte, and
Sarasota have been added to NUFORC's database this spring. Since
they're all anonymously posted, it's hard to tell what, if any,
impact these events have on witnesses.

But every now and then, someone like Cathy Mills will step up
and volunteer some life-altering details.

On the evening of Feb. 28, around 8:30, Mills and her husband
were driving north along McIntosh Road, leaving Sarasota Square
Mall when, off the passenger side to the east, a row of four
whitish lights in the sky flashed on so brightly they
illuminated low clouds nearby. They stayed that way for maybe
three seconds, according to Mills, revealing the doughnut-shaped
contours of a round, hovering object, before blinking off.

Mills' husband, the driver, said, "Did you see that?" but he
kept his voice low, not wanting to alarm their three preoccupied
kids in the back of the van. The lights flashed once more, for
another three seconds or so, before going black. And that was
that. Event duration =96 maybe 10 seconds.

"It was not a plane, it was not a helicopter, it was not
normal," says the Sarasota resident. "Never in a million years
did I expect to see something like this."

She went back to the scene the next day, trying to figure out if
she'd missed a lighting tower or some other feature. She called
the police, to no avail. She'd drive past the site at night,
wondering if it would come back. Come April, she was Googling
UFOs, and she filed her story online at UFOs Northwest:


"I'm a Christian and I've grown up with God all my life," she
says. "Now I find myself trying to figure out how this fits into
the picture, because your logical mind wants an explanation."

Lately, at night, when Mills steps outside for a cigarette, she
anticipates things. Maybe that's its own reward.

"What I realized is," she says, "I've never really looked up at
the sky before."
