Well i was just about to say i read/heard about the Gulf Breeze case when you were likely not born yet, but since you stated your age earlier i would be wrong doing so
Uhm...no, not "everyone" believes Ed Walters is a fraud, i myself did not know what to think when i read those books years ago...but given the EVIDENCE now i think we can safely assume that he was, in fact, a fraud.
But of course, there will always be those who will counter with another "conspiracy" how he was duped etc..etc..
But that's not the point. It's simply not smart trying to prove one theory with another story which is AT LEAST as flaky, if not outright proven to be a hoax.
You are the typical example of that sort of UFO enthusiast which STRONGLY leans in one, biased direction, almost incapable to discern between hoax, fake etc...and then demanding "proof" from anyone questioning the legitimacy of the "proof". (Instead of vice versa that the obligation for the proof should really be with those making the claims).
So...let's say i give you 10.000 UFO cases where 9.990 of them can easily proven bogus, hoaxes or whatever, and instead of concentrating on the remaining 10 "good" cases which would deserve that people look at them.... you would rather prefer to take all 10.000 and assume beforehand that EACH of them might be legit. Do you think this would get you anywhere?

I watch the sky at least an hour or two every night in the tampa bay area. The most I have found is satellites orbiting. Maybe your eyes are tricking you.

I think an important thing that people should remember is, just cause it is a UFO, does not necessarily make it Aliens.
In theory a russian plane that can't be identified as a russian plane would be classified as a UFO. Just keep that in mind people. The word UFO has kind of gone off track.

Not to discount your observations at all, but there is a phenomenon whereby if the background is matte enough and the lighting is right, you will see what is a reflection of the capillaries in your retina, projected out into what appears to be your field of view. If you hold your eyes very still, you will be able to make out the tiny capillaries, and the red blood cells passing through them, one at a time. The 'map' will not change though. I always see it if I look rather half-focused through a window in the summertime when the sky is a clear blue; other times I'm not aware of it.
I asked an ophthalmologist about it once and he concurred that was what it was. (Another had never heard of it).
I don't know if this would happen at night though, but your description of 'red orange' makes me wonder.

I don't know what you saw exactly because I wasn't there ,but what you are describing sounds very much like a satellite. You make it sound like there are few satellites in orbit. Take a look at this so you understand exactly how many are up there.
Of course, it all depends on where you are also. As I stated in an earlier post, I'm in South FL, and it's nearly impossible to see a satellite because of light pollution ,but that doesn't rule out the fact that you can't see something other than a satellite even with light pollution. It would help if you posted your general location so something like a satellite can be ruled out or not.

Every single night for the past two weeks---- I keep seeing these star-sized points of light darting around in space. From my prospective (Earth!) they appear to be extremely high up surpassing any normal plane altitude and certainly higher than 40,000.
What the hell is going on?
They appear at various times throughout the night sky too. I just now saw one. Yesterday's was around midnight.
I refuse to believe they're satellites. First because they're lit up and second, they're all over the place in their trajectory. They are literally darting around.
I saw a red/orange triangle UFO last week gliding right above my house... which had me awestruck but these star-sized objects are mysteriously amazing too.
Is this something new or am I just noticing them more?
It's almost like a given that if I go outside and spend 10 minutes looking up, I'll see one of these objects.
Is anyone else from Palm Beach county or anywhere in south Florida witnessing this too?
