Marco Island is on the Coast of Southwest Florida.

Date of Sighting: July 18, 1997
Time of Sighting: 10 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Marcos Island, Florida (See Map)

Description: My family was on vacation in Marco Island, Florida. We were staying in a hotel near the end of the beach and my wife and I were sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean on the 6th floor. At around 10:00 PM we were both looking out at the ocean. We saw an object moving at a rapid speed following the shore line. It was moving so fast that we could not tell how far from us it actually was, but I estimate no more than 100 yards. This object made no sound and had no lights. To me it looked cigar shaped and dark brown in color. Due to the high speed it was traveling and it being night time it was only in our field of vision for maybe one or two seconds. The thing is we both witnessed it so it was not our eyes playing tricks. I cannot explain what I saw that night and wonder if anyone else has seen something simular to my sighting.

Note: This is an old sighting and was not reported until over 12 years after it occurred. It must have impacted the witnesses because they still recall the exact date. I have no explanation for what was sighted.
