Seventh sighting of a "UGO" in past 4 weeks.

Sighting #13 – July 25, 2013 – Seventh sighting of the “UGO” I was at my regular skywatch location on the south end of Captiva Island, FL, next to the rock jetty at Blind pass, when a friend and I saw another Unidentified Glowing Object. I was looking just east of due south through my binoculars when at 10:08 p.m., I spotted a dim, unmistakable white glow that appeared to be very close to Clam Bayou, just west of my friend “Carol’s” house, where we had four previous sightings of UGOs. On one of those occasions at her house, we saw three UFO’s in association with the two UGOs, in addition to an apparently landed UFO (see “Sighting # 8 in my previously filed “Summary of 10 UFO….”).

This time both my friend and I were prepared – she at her house, and me 1.5 miles to the north (as the crow flies), looking from a different vantage point. I had called her about 10 minutes before this sighting to tell her I was in position; this time I brought a chair to sit in for a one-hour one watch. She was prepared to periodically go out to her porch to se what she could see.

I called her just as soon as I spotted the glow, she went out to her porch, and saw the glow, describing it as “intense.” I stayed on the phone with her for a few moments as she was describing to me what she was seeing. The glow stayed at it’s highest intensity she had ever seen it for a minute, maybe just a tad longer. Then it went out as before, as if on a dimmer switch. After a minute or two, it came back on “quickly,” stayed on briefly, then went back out again. Carol, being alone, became very frightened and afraid that the UFO’s would show up again, then went inside. She did not want to go out and look again, or even look through her sliding glass doors.

I stayed at my location scanning the area for another hour, hoping to see one or more of the previously seen UFO associated with the glow to show up, but I observed nothing more. One important thing I learned during this excursion was that just because I didn’t notice anything more doesn’t mean that there was not anything to see. It was unlikely I would have anything unless the glow was at it’s greatest intensity, and I was luckily looking straight at it through my binoculars.

There is no possible way this glow could be “swamp gas” for two reasons: (1) the glow originates outside of the Bayou, just past and behind of the seaward tree line; (2) the bayou is quite open, and is not swamp like at all.

If these things are on any kind of a “schedule,” then the UFO’s should show up in 10 days or less.


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
