BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Was it a star, an airplane, a weather balloon, or perhaps a UFO?
The light in the sky late Monday night over the Camino Real neighborhood in Boca Raton prompted residents to call police and television stations between 9:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
One person even recorded the light with his cellular phone camera.
An unidentified person at Boca Raton Police said he thinks it was a high-flying kite with a bicycle light attached.
No word yet on who sent the kite airborne, and created such a stir.

I was driving home at 10:25pm heading south on 9th Avenue in Boca Raton. I saw hundreds of cars lining the streets including CSI, Boca Police and K-9 units. The police set up a telescope. I asked what the commotion was about, and onlookers pointed to the object... the glaringly white (blinking red, green and blue) object, moving erratically upways, and downways and east and west. It was oval-shaped (length east/west direction).
fishertom - 8:45 PM 0 Votes Report User you guys are crazy. the "ufo" was a kite. the kite landed in my front lawn with an LED light and about 100 yrds of 10 lb fishing line. the line was frayed and broke thats why the kite suddenly dropped. if you guys watched it drop from camino if landed around royal palm. near the old fire station. it was a spider man kite with a bike LED attatched. people followed it to my house and were waiting outside when i came home so for all you who believe that the "ufo" was actually a UFO then your wrong. a kite can stay in the air for a long time when its blowing 10-15 mph and even more when you get about 500 ft. you can easily control a kite and keep it level.
