Not a UFO: High altitude balloon seen floating over SWFL – Wink News

FORT MYERS

WINK News received numerous reports of a possible UFO floating through the skies of Southwest Florida, so we looked into it and learned that it was not an alien spacecraft.

Chief Meteorologist Matt Devitt confirmed that the mysterious object was a balloon belonging to the company World View, floating at 65,000 feet in the stratosphere. The balloon floated from Tuscon, Arizona, to Southwest Florida.

World View says it uses the balloons to make Earth observations for its clients. The company also says it plans to use the balloons for space tourism starting in 2024 at $50,000 a seat. You can learn more about World View on their website by clicking here.
