The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
We were fishing ten miles off the coast of pensacola. we were trapped between two storm systems and hurrying to outrun lightening storm behind us, going approximately 20 mph in our boat. about 7 miles off the coast we saw what looked like 8 or so (did not actually count them) bright lights in the sky in a straight line right below a storm cloud. they appeared white or silver and spanned across a large part of the sky. they stayed maybe 2 minutes or so then disappeared, they did not move up or down, just disappeared like someone turned off the lights. they did not appear to move or anything, just suddenly appeared and suddenly disappeared. i tried to photograph but my camera suddenly would not work although i had used it all day, and it worked find just after the lights disappeared.
