Ed Walters UFO Craft“On November 11, 1987 Ed Walters, a successful builder and contractor in Gulf Breeze, Florida, noticed an unusual glow behind the thirty-foot pine tree in his yard. He stepped outside to what seemed like a scene from a Spielberg movie. Except it was real. Hovering overhead in eerie silence was a large, glowing, bluish gray craft. Ed stared in disbelief and ran for his Polaroid camera. Knees trembling, he moved quickly, aiming his camera at the pulsing, throbbing mass of energy. Bang! Something hit him. He couldn’t move. Encompassed in a blue light beam, he was lifted from the ground. Rapid visions. Strange voices. No air. Panic. Then nothing. He was back on the ground. The blue light was gone. The craft had disappeared. But Ed had the pictures.”

“In the weeks that followed, additional sightings were shared by Ed’s wife and family and corroborated by hundreds of residents in the Gulf Breeze area. The amazingly clear, close-up photographs presented in the subsequent book, The Gulf Breeze UFO Sightings were authenticated by professional photographic analysts, including an optical physicist with the U.S. Navy, and by top technical experts with the Polaroid Corporation. Together with Ed and Frances Walters’ riveting firsthand account, they provide the most stunning and persuasive UFO evidence to date.” [1]

The Shielded Being


Walter's Shielded Being



“On December 2nd, 1987 at three o’clock in the morning, Ed Walters heard some strange voices speaking Spanish. Thirty minutes later his dog started barking and he went to check the porch. When he pulled the blind back, he saw a 4-foot tall being with large almond shaped eyes looking at him. The being wore some type of shield over its head, chest, and lower body and was holding a lighted rod in its right hand. The being then turned around and ran towards a nearby open field.” [2]



ET UFO Blue Beam“As Ed chased the being, he was struck by a blue beam of light which made him unable to move his legs and he fell to the ground. Ed felt the blue beam was holding him down somehow. When Ed was finally able to move again, he ran back to his house and grabbed his camera and photographed a large bowl-shaped craft with darkened portholes and an illuminated orange ring on the bottom, he could also see the beam of blue light shining down on the ground.”



Another Shielded Being

Shielded Uniformed ET Humanoid

In another related case, and during he same timeframe Ed and his family were having their sightings, a taller shielded being appeared near an abductee’s home late one night. The subject stated the being was near a “white car shaped craft” that was sitting in the man’s [rather spacious] driveway. The craft appeared only large enough to hold one or two people. This incident occurred approximately 45 miles from Gulf Breeze, Florida and during the same time frame Ed Walter’s encounters were occurring.

Ed Walters underwent psychological testing followed by regressive hypnosis. Ed and the forensic psychologist who worked with him would uncover many of the now familiar types of beings performing experiments and medical procedures on him. Two of those beings are represented here, as described by Ed Walters to members of TOR, The Object Report Team.



Early Stage Hybrid

The image below depicts a Grey, early stage Hybrid wearing a sheer veil over its head and face and a light purple gown like dress to soften his/her appearance whilst performing a medical procedure. Many of the beings wear garments for the specific purpose of attempting to make themselves appear less “alien” to their Abductee-Experiencer subjects.


Hybrid Grey Extraterrestrial


The image below is of a Hybrid female performing a procedure on Ed Walters using light / energy beaming technology; most likely affecting his brain’s memory pathways. As one can obviously see from the image, these types of procedures are not without their share of discomfort.

Forensic Psychologist’s Findings


The following forensic psychologist’s findings regarding Ed Walters are excerpted from Dr. Bruce Maccabee’s 2003 paper entitled, “Defence of Ed Walters: Commentary on ‘An Interview with Jerry Black’

“My opinion that the sightings were real was further enhanced later on in the summer of 1988 when I was told of the results of the investigation undertaken by Dr. Dan Overlade, a clinical psychologist specializing in forensic psychology, who had spent many hours interviewing Ed, and had given Ed a many hour long battery of psychological tests and then had hypnotically regressed him during eight, one hour sessions. I learned that Charles Flannigan, one of the MUFON investigators of the Gulf Breeze sightings, had contacted Dr. Overlade in May of 1988 and asked if Overlade would regress Ed. Dr. Overlade…”

HybridsRising.com: Bruce-Maccabee-Open-Minds-TV-Banner.jpg“Dr. Overlade had been a President of the Florida Psychological Association and was a Fellow of the American College of Forensic Psychology. [He] wrote his conclusions and these were presented several years later in the book Abductions in Gulf Breeze by Ed and Frances Walters, Avon, 1994; Chapter 3.  He wrote:”

“I told Charles that hypnotic regressions were part of my clinical practice and that I had conducted hundreds of such regressions to identify memories repressed as a result of traumatic emotional experiences, although until now, no regressions pertaining to possible UFO experiences...I told Charles I would be willing to proceed if (Ed) would be willing to subject himself to an extensive battery of psychological tests.  My reasoning was simple: the man was either psychologically and emotionally stable or he was not; and his condition would need to be known before I could proceed with a hypnotic regression.”

“Overlade administered about 8 hours of standard tests (Rorschach “inkblot” test, Thematic Apperception test, Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale and “Draw a Person” test) and concluded as follows (from Chapter 3 of AIGB):

“I developed the opinion that Ed was emotionally and mentally stable and a somewhat conventional and non-assertive man...There were no indications of any bizarre ideation, hysteria, or other neurotic pattern nor any sociopathic personality. In short, no psychological condition was identified which would suggest that his report represented an aberration of thought or deliberate deceit...”

“Besides writing several of the chapters in Abductions in Gulf Breeze, Overlade also wrote the foreword and included the following sentence:”

“I have concluded that the regressive hypnosis episodes presented in this book are not shams or hoaxes and that they represent the truth and accuracy to the best of Edward Walters’ knowledge and belief.”

“In other words, after spending at about a dozen-and-a-half hours with Ed, discussing Ed’s life, discussing the sightings, discussing Ed’s memories, administering tests and conducting regressive hypnosis, Overlade, who was accustomed to working with all sorts of people (including criminals), concluded that Ed was telling the truth as Ed knew it.”

“Note: Dr. Overlade was sufficiently convinced by the experience of working with Ed that he made himself available, through MUFON, to other local abductees and, if I recall correctly, was working with about eight people when he died several years later.” [3]
