Katharine, a great white shark. surfaced five times Tuesday morning, all in the same general area east of Melbourne: 5:47 a.m., 6:39 a.m., 7:32 a.m., 8:17 a.m. and 8:50 a.m.
The shark paid a visit to familiar waters off Brevard County Monday.
She has been steadily approaching the area for several days, said OCEARCH, a great white shark research and advocacy team.
Katharine pinged three times Jan. 13 off the coast of Palm Beach County — the closest one being about 12 miles off the coast of Lake Worth.
Her next ping came about 6:45 a.m. Monday more than 43 miles off the coast of Melbourne, according to OCEARCH’s website. She had pinged about 10:30 p.m. the previous night about 12 miles west of her latest location.
