Full Description of Event/Sighting: I have actually had two encounters of this kind. The first time was in October. My boyfriend and I were just getting out of my car, I was waiting for him to take our baby’s car seat out when I looked up.
I saw what appeared to be a floating "campfire" traveling fairly low in the sky. It was moving slow enough for us to watch it for a minute or two before it zoomed toward the southwest. We had not seen anything like that before, and it was not until a few weeks ago that we saw it again.
On the fourth of July, we went out to Jacksonville beach to watch the fireworks with our child. I happened to look up and see the same kind of floating fire that we had witnessed before. At first I thought it could have been from the fireworks, but it was going the opposite direction the wind was blowing.
I pointed it out to my boyfriend and he was amazed to see it again also. I have tried researching it, but I have only found a Will-o'-the-wisps for a matching description, and neither time was around a marsh.
