      Subject: Odd incident with Embry Riddle pilot on 132.65

      A short while ago, at 10:40pm EDT (0240z), an Embry-Riddle pilot
      (sounded like an instructor, not a student) was flying northbound and in
      contact with Daytona Beach Approach on 132.65. Suddenly he came on and
      sounded very excited, exclaiming to the ATC that he just had a near miss.
      The ATC asked him what type of acft he saw and where it was.
      The pilot responded that it was not an aircraft and that it was just a
      short way off his right wing. It came upon him very suddenly and then soared
      upward. He said it was about the size of a baby carriage.
      The ATC asked him if it could have been a bird. The pilot responded "No
      it was no bird, it soared upward fast; I have no idea what it was."
      The ATC related some unusual sights he had seen during his career flying
      USAF C-130s, and he tried to calm the Embry Riddle pilot, but the pilot
      remained a bit excited about what he had seen, insisting that it was a
      strange unsettling sight. Eventually the ATC handed him off to 125.8,
      another Daytona Beach Approach freq.
