The state of Florida has long been considered a hotbed for sightings of UFOs and unidentified submerged objects (USOs), and the Gulf Breeze region is no exception. In 1980, Ed Walters captured some of the most compelling evidence of UFO sightings in Gulf Breeze, Florida. He took several photographs of a glowing object that appeared to be an acorn-shaped spacecraft, surrounded by lights and emitting a bright light from the bottom.
Although some skeptics have claimed that the photographs were hoaxed using double exposure techniques, many researchers believe that Walters’ story was genuine. In fact, there were a dozen other witnesses who reported seeing the same object, and several hundred more who saw something that could have been related.
So, what exactly is a USO? As explained by Bill Birnes, USOs are “unidentified submerged objects” that are essentially the underwater equivalent of UFOs. The Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean area are both hot spots for USO activity, and there have been countless reports of sightings over the years.
Interestingly, the acorn shape of the spacecraft that Walters photographed is similar to the craft that was hand-drawn by a witness in Cuba. Both objects have a basic acorn shape, are surrounded by lights, and emit a bright light from the bottom. The acorn shape is also similar to what was seen in Kecksburg, Pennsylvania, in 1965.
Despite the overwhelming evidence and numerous sightings in the area, Walters was called a hoaxer by some skeptics. However, he never let the critics get the best of him and remained steadfast in his belief that what he saw was real. He even passed two lie detector tests and eight hours of psychological tests that proved his sanity.
So, what do these mysterious alien spacecraft want? That is the million-dollar question. Although there are no definitive answers, many researchers believe that they could be attracted to something in the water or out in the ocean.
The Gulf Breeze region of Florida remains a hot spot for sightings of unidentified flying and submerged objects. Although skeptics continue to cast doubt on the validity of the evidence, many researchers believe that there is something truly mysterious and otherworldly happening in the area. Only time will tell what the truth really is.
