6th, 7th and 8th SIGHTINGS OF "FLASHERS."

((NUFORC Note: This is one of nineteen reports, submitted by the same witness, over the course of seven weeks. The reports are well written, and the witness seems sincere, although we would be surprised if all of the sightings are about authentic UFOs, i.e. alien spacecraft. We cannot be certain, however. PD))

SIGHTING #21 – August 8, 2013 – 6th, 7th and 8th SIGHTINGS OF "FLASHERS" I arrived at my regular skywatch location at 9:15 p.m. on the south end of Captiva Island, FL, USA, just north of the rock jetty at Blind Pass, when at 9:50 I saw the first of three flashers due west of me, low on the horizon – again, very near where the UGO had been sighted many times before. This flasher was comprised of 3 to 4 individual strobe lights, all flashing irregularly and very quickly, so that there was always at least one light on at all times. This flasher was only visible through binoculars, except for an occasional flash that was visible to the naked eye.

I saw the second flasher at about 10:15. It was very similar to the first, almost due north of me, again, low to the horizon. It appeared to be a couple of miles off shore of North Captiva, around 5 miles north of me. I watched this one for a couple of minutes as it traveled horizontally, slowly toward the west and open water, before it faded out of view.

I saw the third one a short while later, to the NW of me, directly above the second (and only) place where I and others have seen a UGO. This one also drifted down toward the horizon for about 3 minutes before fading out of view.
