((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 # 22 – August 9 , 2013 – EXTRAORDINARY SIGHTING OF SILVER-GOLD, GLOWING FOOTBALL SHAPED UFOS APPARENTLY COMING OUT OF THE GULF AND MERGING TOGETHER, AND 9TH SIGHTING OF A “UGO” I arrived at my regular skywatch location at 9:35 p.m. on the south end of Captiva Island, FL, USA, just north of the rock jetty at Blind Pass. The beach here runs NNW to SSE. The weather was clear and calm, with some clouds well past the horizon of the Gulf of Mexico. Although this was my third and last sighting of the night, it was so exciting that I will report it first. When I first arrived at my skywatch site, I saw the same UGO at the same “due west” location I and others had seen it at before. I pointed out the UGO to some shark fishermen on the beach where I was, and they could see it too, even though it was somewhat dim.

Other than the UGO, nothing else was happening so I walked up to the rock jetty about 150 yards to the south, to see what I would see down toward my friends house on Sanibel, where we had seem many UFOs and UGOs before. I saw nothing down there, and after a while I had walked just about all the way back to the shark fishermen, when at around 10:30 I saw a yellowish light on the horizon with my naked eye, about a mile off shore of North Captiva.

I looked at the light through my binoculars and could clearly see two dull-silver/goldish, glowing, clearly defined, oblong-football shaped UFOs, one above the other, with the bottom one clearly visible right on the water’s surface, apparently having just come out of the water!! The craft were not full football shaped, nor were they fully oblong. Maybe more like an oblong with a bulge in the middle. I think that my color description is a good one; it’s also the first color that come to mind. I figured it was coming out of the water because when I first saw it, compared to the one above it, it was much smaller and “blob-like,” and then almost instantly got bigger and gained an identifiable shape. It was the same shape, size and color of the one above it. I feel comfortable estimating that it was no more than 4 miles away from me, and that the clearly defined craft were no more than 100 feet long, and perhaps 40 or 50 feet tall. The surface of the craft was well defined! , and its skin gave them their glow and color. There were no other lights.

Very important here is what really struck me about the shape and color of these craft, was their possible resemblance to what my friend saw a couple of weeks earlier, not more than a half mile away from her house – see Sighting #17. Her description of the craft could very well be better than mine simply because of the distance at which I saw it/them, and the closeness at which se saw them, at a half mile or less. The bright white craft with “yellowish edging” that she described is very similar to my color interpretation of a a craft that was dull-silver and goldish. This there is at least some reason that these two craft could be of the same class.

After no more than one minute, the craft below began to rise, while the one above remained stationary. The craft were approximately 5 widths apart. The craft ascended the 5 widths in about 15 seconds, appeared to become one with the craft above because it looked like there was a single craft but twice as wide, and then just merged with the one above!! I figured that they merged because after it happened I could only see one well defined craft.

Then after 30 seconds or so, another craft just emerged from the Gulf and stayed on or very near the water’s surface for 15 or 20 seconds before it too ascended and merged with the craft above, which remained in place during the entire event. Once this second craft merged with the one above, they just disappeared!! I went and told the fishermen what I had just seen, and they were just as stunned as I was! Wow! I continued to look back and forth across the horizon of the Gulf, and no more than 5 minutes later I saw with my naked eye the same kind of oblong, whitish/yellow/gold light to the south of me, just off of the end of the rock jetty at Blind Pass, and maybe 3 or so miles to the SSW of me, perhaps a mile or so off of my friend house. This is the first time I’d seen this colored light down there for quite some time.

I had just brought my binocs up and got it in focus to see that it was the same kind of “double craft” - one above the other – that I’d just seen to the north, when a car pulled into the parking lot at Turner’s Beach facing toward the southern Gulf, and “accidentally” shined it lights on it, and then it just disappeared.

Now things get a more interesting. When I started writing up this report it brought to mind my 4th sighting, during which I was able to get a photograph of 4 of the amber fireball lights, where I thought I saw only one. As I wrote in that report, I thought that the object was very near the water because I could see what I thought was a reflection of it on the water. But now that I think about it, in light of what I’d just watched to the north off of Cayo Costa, and what I had just seen, I now have to think that what saw back then was most likely what I’d just witnessed to the north! It was not a reflection underneath of it, it was another craft coming out of the water! Further rationale: back during my 4th sighting, it took about a minute from the time when I decided to take a picture of the amber light, to when I dug my camera out of the bag and set it up to take a picture. I know with certainty that there was only one light out there before I started taking photos (only 1 of 3 came out), so the only thing I can think of is that the 3 additional craft that came out in the photograph had just come out of the water! Where else could they have come from? If anyone would have suggested such a t thing to me back then, I would have thought that they were crazy!! I do remember that I was sure glad I took the photos, because very shortly after I took the photos the lights were gone.

Something special really does seem to be going on out here, and I’m now beginning to think that it may have to do with one or more underwater “bases.”
