Gulf Breeze Sightings

Date: November 11, 1987
Location: Gulf Breeze, Florida, United States

"Ed Walters was working in his home office when he noticed a light moving outside, partially obscured by the pine tree in his yard. To get a better look, Ed went out of the front door, and could see that the light was in fact a glowing bluish-gray craft like none he had seen before... Ed would go on to photograph it many time"

"I was astounded when the UFO returned nine days later, on November 20, again just
before dark. Far overhead, a light that looked like a star swiftly dropped from the sky. I aimed
the camera, follwed the UFO, and took this photo as the craft moved up and then off to my
right." (Credit: "The Gulf Breeze Sightings" by Ed and Frances Walters)

Ed Walters is a successful residential builder and a member of the City Planning Board of
Gulf Breeze. He donates much time to community service. Frances Walters is well known in
the community and was the president of the high school PTA. (Credit: "The Gulf Breeze
Sightings" by Ed and Frances Walters)

"The UFO returned in less than half an hour. I pulled up the bedroom window shade to see
this small, shielded being standing just on the other side of the glass, looking in my eyes."

From Introduction (front flap) to the book, The Gulf Breeze Sightings, by Ed and Frances Walters:

On November 11, 1987, Ed Walters, a prosperous builder-contractor in the exclusive Community of Gulf Breeze, Florida, saw a peculiar light shing through a tall pine tree in his front yard. He could see that the glow was unusual -- quite different from any of the commonplace planes and heliopters from the nearby naval air station that frequently populated the skies of Gulf Breeze. He stepped outside and saw a bluish gray craft like none he had ever seen before. It was intensely quiet, and Ed was intensely frightened. He rushed back into the house and grabbed the old Polaroid camera that was a part of his work gear as a builder. And he took photos.

The sightings continued and were shared by his wife and family. Ed's photos were published -- anonymously -- in the local weekly newspaper, and the sightings were corroborated by hundreds of residents in the Gulf Breeze area -- priests, politicians, judges, policemen, soldiers, ordinary middle class citizens.


An Introduction to the Gulf Breeze Sightings as Reported and Photographed by Ed Walters

from John Gilbert, Skiesare UFO Page

Today Gulf Breeze, in Florida, is known as one of the world's top UFO hot spots. Sightings are being made and UFOs photographed and videoed all the time. Check out the Gulf Breeze Skywatch Diary to see the latest news from the area.

But it all started with a building contractor called Ed Walters. On the 11th of November, 1987, Ed was working in his home office when he noticed a light moving outside, partially obscured by the pine tree in his yard. To get a better look, Ed went out of the front door, and could see that the light was in fact a glowing bluish-gray craft like none he had seen before.

Ed rushed back into his office to grab his Polaroid camera which he used on job sights and stepped out onto the porch again. As the craft came from behind the tree, he took his first photo. He watched for a moment and then, "Bang! Something hit me. All over my body, I tried to lift my arms, I couldn't move them. They were blue, I was blue, everything was blue. I was in a blue light beam. I was trying to breathe but my chest wouldn't expand. My feet lifted off the floor, a voice groaned in my head, " We will not harm you." I screamed, the voice said "Calm down." I screamed "Put me down!" No control, just a piecing smell, a little scent of ammonia mixed with heavy cinnamon that scorched, then stuck to, the back of my throat. A hum filled my head. Wham! I hit the ground, the blue light was gone. The hum was still in my head but quickly decreased and was gone."

On November the 20th, the hum returned, and with it, Ed could hear voices, as if he was listening in on a conversation. He went out side and saw a small speck of light falling at great speed. He took photo 6 as the UFO suddenly dropped its fall and hung in the sky. This photo has been light blasted and enhanced in this version.

It is this hum which Ed hears when ever the UFO comes close that has enabled him to photograph it so many times.

On the 2nd of December, Ed's house was visited again. At about 3.30 a.m., Ed was awakened by the sound of his dog barking just once. He went to investigate and on opening the blinds on his French doors, he was confronted by a four-foot-tall creature with big black eyes. Ed screamed and fell backwards, the creature looked at him for a moment then walked away. "I gave chase. As my feet left the shelter of the back porch, I was hit by the blue beam and held immobile while the creature fled into the vacant field at the back of my house. As soon as I could move, I retreived my camera and took this picture of the UFO shooting the blue beam into the field. I believe that it was picking up the creature I had seen."

Just before sunrise on December 5th, this UFO hovered above the tree line near the high school about a block from Ed's house. "The UFO moved towards me, I heard the voice say 'Do not resist...Zehaas.'"

This is just a small introduction to the story of Ed and the UFO. He would go on to photograph it many times, with his polaroid, a special four-lens sealed camera given to him by MUFON, a stereo Polaroid which allowed the UFO to be ranged and a video camera. The whole story is contained in the book "The Gulf Breeze Sightings" by Ed and Frances Walters ISBN 0-380-70870-1.
