Most people visit Florida for the sun, the surf, and warmth. They love to boat, swim, fish, and visit world famous theme parks and other attractions.
Some hope to see a different sort of attraction they heard about on television reports, saw in magazine features, or caught in tabloid headlines near the supermarket checkout.
Gulf Breeze, UFO hotspot
Gulf Breeze teems with reported sightings and the curious go there armed with video cameras, hoping for a thrill and perhaps a chance at momentary fame by filming a UFO or selling the story of their encounter of the third kind.
Gulf Breeze is a well-known for hundreds of sightings and at least two attempted abductions by alien beings reported. In 1987, when it all began, the town boasted of around 6,000 residents. The map shows it is located in far northwest Florida, almost to the Louisiana border. They now put on an annual UFO Conference sponsored by “Project Awareness.”
First Report-Edward Walters
In 1987, Edward Walters said that an UFO tried to abduct him. He spied a bright light in his window while working one night. He ran outside to look at it and tried to take a picture of it with his Polaroid camera.
He felt himself rising above the floor, lifted by a blue beam, like the “Scotty, beam me up,” scenes in Star Trek. He heard a voice say, “We will not harm you.” Then he found himself on the floor with his captors gone.
Only the beginning.
Starting in November of that year, he claims that he saw the UFO a number of times. He took good pictures of it, which convinced many people and made them believers. These contact visits lasted about three weeks.
A researcher concluded that the case was a hoax, perhaps a cover-up for suspicious financial dealings. Another researcher, Zan Overall, said that Walter knew double exposure and other photography tricks, which helped him fake pictures. A new owner also claimed to find a model similar to the photos in a forgotten nook in Walter’s old house.
It should be noted that there is a military base near Gulf Breeze, which raises the possibility that the military may be testing something. Investigator Michael Hawking believes that Walter’s photos are genuine and showed some footage on You Tube which he thinks is a real UFO.
Not the end of it.
Gulf Breeze became an attraction to many because others said they also saw UFOs and took photos of them. At least 200 people made this claim and one or more photographed an UFO similar to the one in Walter’s photo.
Walters reported seeing a ghost with huge black eyes. Another time, a four-foot tall being spoke to him. A neighbor claimed that the ghost eyed creature tried to abduct a child. Other people say they were “missing time” a classic symptom of UFO abduction. A few say their yards show a large circular burned spot more than 20 feet in diameter, a sign of an UFO landing.
Types of objects.
Some people saw fiery triangles. Others saw shiny discs with revolving lights underneath. Sometimes lights sped through the sky at amazing speed and impossible angles.
If you dare.
When you want to see UFOs, Gulf Breeze gives you a chance to see one or more, watch something strange in the sky, meet an alien in your yard, or perhaps take a ride in one of the strange ships. That is, if you dare!
