The witness was camping in this area on July 6, 2016, just a few miles from Pensacola Naval Air Station.

“Around 11:30p.m., I saw a round craft with red lights go out into the bay with search lights on the ground following it,” the witness stated.“It went to a spot 200-300 feet in the air, it hovered and then circled back to the airstrip. This happened 4-5 times. I had my binoculars and was only 2-3 miles from it.”

The witness was also able to see the object land.

“When it landed, from what I could see, it seemed a cloud of gas or fog surrounded the object. I got the feeling it was remote controlled because on one of the flights while hovering it bounced up and down while hovering like someone was having some fun with a joystick.”

The witness watched the object land back at the air base. Pictured: Perdido Key, Florida, near the Pensacola Naval Air Station. (Credit: Google)

The witness may have been looking at a base-controlled drone.

“In summing it up; it took off, hovered at the same spot and returned to the area it took off from, which was the airbase, over the course of a half of an hour 4-5 times.”

Florida MUFON State Section Director George Williams and Field Investigator Bruce White are investigating. Please remember that most UFO sightings can be explained as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

    Be that as it may, in the future all Drone-Heads are hereby put on notice that the FAA will restrict private Drones to day time. That is, if you see strange lights in the sky after dark, it will NOT be a private Drone. This should help clear up the Drone, Drone, Drone problem.
