Description of Area / Surroundings


Full Description & Details

I was vacationing in Panama City late last summer. I was alone on the balcony of our condo, I believe it was the 11th floor, looking out at the ocean. I saw a dark spot probably 200 to 300 yards out in the water. My thought was it was a school of fish.

The darkness was moving diagonally towards the shore. As I watched I noticed it seemed to be moving in a straight line as it was approaching the shore. It came into the shallow water, I could not see any fish, just a dark area in the water.

The area moved onto the sandy beach and it was a perfect shadow circle. What was so strange, unlike a bird or an airplane which leaves a blurry shadow, is the shadow was crisp like what was making it was no more that 20 or 30 feet off the surface. The shadow continued diagonally between our condo and the condo next to us.

I told my son-in-law about it and when he looked at me like I was crazy I never told anyone else.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

I would think a shadow of a weather balloon or other object would make a blurry shadow. With the crisp shadow I saw I can only assume that the object was flying low (between me and the ground) and completely stealth.

I believe there could be UFOs but have done very little reading or studying of them
