Part 1: Mysterious, Glowing, Aerial “Gyroscopes” Over Florida’s Isles of Capri

“He said he was taking a boat home one of those nights and this huge, spinning, glowing thing came down over his boat, just hovered and scared the living daylights out of him.”

- Ann Hall, Columnist, Marco Island Sun Times

 

Marco Island and the nearby Isles of Capri are a little south of Naples, Florida (red circle) west of the Big Cypress National Preserve. Throughout 2010, there have been persistent sightings by many residents of a very large, bright, spinning light of unknown origin that some eyewitnesses compare to an aerial “gyroscope.”

November 24, 2010  Isles of Capri, Florida south of Naples - On October 31, 2010, the Marco Eagle that serves the Florida community of Marco Island south of Naples, ran a story entitled “Starry Nights Unexplained Sights” by Tom Williams, author of the adventure novel "Lost and Found." Tom had interviewed Morgan Beall, the Florida State Section Director of the Mutual Unidentified Flying Object network known as MUFON. Since January 2010, MUFON and local police and fire authorities have received calls from many Naples, Isles of Capri and Marco Island residents about highly strange aerial lights that spin, form geometric patterns that keep changing and even one very large object of unknown origin that has been compared to a gyroscope because it has both horizontal and vertical bands of lights that spin around a central, bright, glowing center.
