In 1987, an event would happen in Gulf Breeze, Florida that would change the world. Ed Walters, a Gulf Breeze resident, claimed to have not only seen ufo‘s, but got multiple high quality photos of them.
And he wasn’t alone. Nearly 200 people also reported seeing ufo‘s in the city. A scandal would break once a ufo model was found in a home Ed Walters used to live in. This is video that looks into the claims, evidence, and witnesses of the famous Gulf Breeze Sightings.

Thanks so much for watching this video everyone! It was a lot of fun being able to put it together.
I made a t-shirt that I wear at the beginning in honor of the event and project. You can get your very own here:
I have an original photo of Ed walters
You guys missed it! The racoons in the dumpster were screen memories! Sometimes, it is said, the Aliens use owls to deter your memory. Lol! 👽🦉😉😜
These "debunkers" are insufferable.
Cavemen with nuclear weapons.
I don't by your photos compared to the ones behind the trees, the people by the dozens, the actual 1980s, unless you lived in that decade, you don't know how much harder it would be. The90s were ten times easier to hoax than the 80s. I believe the town, not just Ed. Ed just happened to be the first to go public. It's funny, just reading the comments I've read people that seen things just above their truck. Howd just Ed, pull that one off. And why's it always just Ed. Go look at a few of 100 other people. It would give the documentary more of a ring of truth
Ed Walters, what about the other FILMED UFO's by all those ppl. Some that zipped away at speeds that would have killed anything on earth, except a waterbear
If Philip Klass is involved, as seen on Oprah, the government sent him hence, it's most likely true. Philip Klass was a debunker that was on all the big cases to make lil kids like I was and idiots as adults not believe that UFO's were a legit thing. John on another person's account
Strange that I've never heard of this case in my 40 years, those photos are incredible to say the least. Sadly it seems a bit too good to be true, with all the sightings and photos. If it would have been only 1 occurance it would have made more sense, but seems like he lost the grip of himself and just went crazy with these photographs, I mean like that model found at the attic probably was the first prototype that he forgot to destroy, and perhaps he made some better looking models for the photographs he took and destroyed those models afterwards. The fact that he doesn't acknowledge the existence of this model in the attic is just too much of nonsense too, it would have made more sense if he'd said that he made a model out of what he saw in the sky… And then that time when that guy was with him and he turned around quickly to photograph a UFO that the person accompanying didn't see just makes it like a bad parody… Cealrly he had already taken shots of that model hanging from a string and developed that film in the camera and somehow put it back in there and the photos he took again would turn out to be double exposure with the UFO object already on the photo.. I don't know how to do this myself but I am sure it's possible with the right knowledge. Alternatively he probably used a glass window in front of him when photographing the other photos outdoors and a mirror on the side to reflect the illumination of the UFO onto the glass in front of the camera, making it look like it was ineed in front of him. That is probably also why you can notice some faint streaks of light at the corners of the photos, probably some light sources had bounced off onto the glass that those areas. I mean everything just is too good to be true. At first I thought he probably just took the photos from indoors looking out through a window glass and the UFO model behind him reflecting in the window, which is highly possible as well, but I think it in the photo taken on the street it would rather have been the alternative stated above with a glass window and a mirror, since it he had the model object behind him in the car or outdoors he would have blocked it with his body/camera and it would have left a shadow into the photo.
Good job putting this video together.
Holden, just happened across your beautifully done ‘documentary’ on the amazing Gulf Breeze sightings! And thanks for reaching out to Bruce and including that convo! In the late 80’s, about your age then, and living in NOLA, I had gone to a UFO conference in Eureka Springs. I met by chance, walking across the parking lot of the conference center, another young bearded guy a few years my senior, who after a short conversation, invited me to his suite, to see his album of photos! You guessed it— many of the photos you worked so hard to scan from Mr. Walter’s book were there, because he had taken them himself! It was only after the conference was over and he and Frances later went public, that I learned that I had met Ed. Having lifelong interest in the subject, I also followed the wave of publicity and carnival that followed, driving over several times to Pensacola/Gulf Breeze. Like you, I will never know the ‘facts/truth’ behind this fiasco. That said, I will also never forget the kind man I met that day, before he was ‘known’ by anyone—the deep sincerity I felt from him, as he sat and opened the album of photos to share with me. Because I have close friends and family who have had a variety of sightings and also close encounters, I choose to withhold judgment. Personally, I liked the man and his wife. And I’m glad you found out that he is still living in the area, name change understandable for that time…. Nowadays who would care!! But so glad he and his family are apparently doing well. As an interesting synchronicity, I ‘discovered’ this YT on Tuesday, Feb 21. Couldn’t help but chuckle when I was watching the ‘model’ section where you and your companion were at the Mini Golf Course, and the large sign on the counter while you spoke with the two employees there: Happy Mardi Gras…and of course, yesterday was Mardi Gras! Keep up the good work!!
They are all down the coast and all over the surrounding area. I have registered uncirculated photos. I am preparing to give a presentation for gulf breeze historical society in my experience. I was wondering what's the story about the baby mentioned? I have a story about a baby with said no DNA. I fought for the truth for over 24 years . Just four years ago exactly Jan 21 st 2019 before the super Wolf blood moon I was warned of the dark coming over the moon. Several contacts were happening and I was instructed to start taking pictures of the sky. What I finally caught and learned is simply a miracle. Ty for sharing this story . Unlike Mr. Walters I welcomed them which came with angels I caught as well. I have some info on my channel. Come and see!
thinking the media tells the truth is like believing the stripper likes you.
We care about micro biology in other solar systems. We be that to them. They'd be interested.
i think the model is planted…
Great video! Your objectivity was apparent throughout. Have you thought about doing a follow-up video?
So I just scrolled backwards through all your videos to see all your reactions and randomly found THIS in hidden in your videos. LOL. I guess I know what I'm doing for the next hour and a half.
I mean…. you couldn't have made the bed?
I'm assuming this video was meant as a joke. You should seriously make a follow up documentary about the military accounts that have been released over the last year about UFO/UAP's. I've seen a few UFO's. The military accounts match what I've actually seen a lot more closely than anything mentioned at Gulf Breeze. That's why I believe that Gulf Breeze was a hoax or just a misunderstanding. Cell phones have getting some really good UAP footage lately that is worth looking into.
First time hearing about this event.. very interesting!
And yes I'm coming straight from the E.T reaction.
I lived in gulf Breeze in the late 90s and I saw a UFO. It had chest trails of fluorescent colors that stayed for several minutes

In 1989 I traveled from Texas to Gulf Breeze to investigate this. I had the chance to converse with Ed Walter over the phone. It was the same weekend a student pilot in a T-2 Buckeye jet crashed and was killed during a carrier training landing.
How can this be? An actual documentary that kept my attention 100% throughout!!!
Just as a practical note- I would like think that if I personally had CE5 experience, I would not be tempted to grab my gun. Can you imagine killing a being that has come countless light-years to meet you, and you kill him/she/it?! [ I have heard that's what happened at the Kecksburg Pa, incident in the 1955]
Well nothing here
Rothschild alien reptoid money grubbers

This the most serius video job what you have done.
At 45:25 the image that they recreate isn’t even close to the original image. In the original, the light on the bottom of the ufo is brighter than the light on the ground which is accurate to real life. Also, the light on the bottom of the ufo in the original looks like it’s inside a cylinder and coming out the bottom, the recreation looks like two bowls with light shining on them. The original photos are really accurate and make sense to real life and it makes it hard to believe this normal guy would go through all this trouble to make extremely accurate and believe fake pictures of ufos, especially with the technology they had back then not being able to edit things or touch anything up. The pictures are too perfect.
Suggestion, recreate. The model yourself and you did, well done 😊 but good investigative journalism 👍 open mind
Glad you showed the model 👍 he is a fraudster, that's a shame, but other's who may have photographed a similar ufo without knowing Ed that's interesting 🧐
Been past that house more times than I can count. I hope it "Flys away" in the next hurricane if it is still there now.
I was hoping more people who lived in the area at the time would have commented and shared their personal experiences with this story. Anyway this was an excellent documentary. This man obviously did his research
One of my friends said he saw a green beam of light flash across the sky there 1:01:44
Average day in florida
8:28 I think Ed was on drugs cause it sounds like it
A Sasquatch one would be great too! I've been binging on the channel "Sasquatch Chronicles" and its super awesome. Theres many genuine people on there. Plus more UFO stuff would be cool. Especially the Phoenix lights incident.
I believe it was real. More people than Ed Walters seen UFOs there. As for the model? Maybe it was his way of studying what he saw, or maybe trying to get some idea as to the exact scale of the spacecraft, based on his pictures. Only time will tell.
If that photo taken one year earlier is real then that changes things. I thought Ed Walters pictures were likely fake but that changes things
And now you can make 738 dollars reselling the hardcover book
It was all a hoax. There is nothing else to say about it. As somebody who lives in Gulf Breeze, FL, we have two air force bases near us and a naval base in Pensacola. There’s always stuff flying over us. Also, there is an airplane flight path right over Pensacola Beach and Gulf Breeze, not including military flight paths
I was born in Pensacola in January ‘88. In November ‘87 my mom was working night shifts at a nursing home in Gulf Breeze.
One night, she heard one of the residents screaming and hollering. She ran to the room and found that the frail older man had somehow pushed his dresser and other room furniture against the door. My mom struggled but finally got in.
The man was losing it, panicked, and told my mom that he noticed a bright light/beam coming from the field outside his window. It was so bright it lit up his room. That’s when, he said, a “little man” walked through one wall and out another. My mom and the other staff didn’t know what to make of it- he had seemed to have “all his marbles.” They sent him to the hospital to be evaluated and he came back the next day. No mental or physical health concerns that could’ve caused hallucinations, delusions, etc.
A week or two AFTER this incident, the first newspaper article was published about Ed Walters’ UFO sightings in Gulf Breeze. My mom, who’s now 70, still remembers this like it was yesterday.
