The Gulf Breeze UFO incident was a series of claimed UFO sightings in Gulf Breeze Florida during 1987.


Beginning on November 11, 1987 Gulf Breeze contractor Ed Walters reported a series of UFO sightings over a period of three weeks. Some ufologists believed the photographs that Walters purported to show a flying saucer were genuine, however others strongly suspected them to be a hoax. Press coverage, given Walters claims during that time, has been called "uncritical" and "sensationalist".[1][2]
