Police officer photographs UFO over Anna Maria Island, Florida


Recommended Posts

 

One photo of the "incident" speaks volumes of the claim.

Anna Marie Island is south of St. Petersburg Beach. This is an area crawling with tourists and snowbirds. One photo says it all.

Why would they send cargo planes to check out anything flying in the sky????

Not sure of the unreleased details, but maybe the Coast Guard plane was on routine patrol/training, reported the object and was told to try and get a closer look.

That would be a very standard initial reaction, if that's what happened.

I can't wait to see the day when I will learn whether UFO's are Russian or American made

Of course i dont know what it really is past at this point an alleged pic of a plane with an extra blurry thing in the shot, typical we only have a story no collaborative info, that area isnt dead and no way this would be the only pic of the event.

Everyone knows how honest and upstanding police officers are, who would doubt this :)

A few of the more riduculous UFO/alien tales do come from cops.

I was in Bradenton a summer ago, and it is indeed crawling with tourists and OLD people. And every third person has a camera. If it was visible from the beach, I imagine a ton of people would have seen it and snapped pics.

My guess is some kind of balloon. LOTS of parties in that part of the world. Stays warm all year round. Lots of drunks too. A big balloon getting loose would... should... be a daily event.

The theme parks here sell all kinds of balloons some have led lights inside and look wild, out in the Kissimmee area is all kinds of that junk floating around.

Ok, so there's only the photo and officer's allegations? Yeah, no. I would kindly say that's not really good evidence and requires more information.

I would also ask if there's any corroboration from the plan's pilot/crew. Maybe there's a radar return of this alleged object? Where are all the corresponding statements and data? 

*sighs* More of the same. Throw this in the bin with the rest of unsubstantiated claims.

The Coast Guard isn't wasting oxygen on the story.
