Me and some friends were walking on the beach in Ft. Walton FL for our 1980 Graduation trip from Mobile. We were walking on the beach that night and observed this round object with lights around it going parallel with the beach just off shore maybe 1/2 a mile. Then it stopped and dropped down with some bright lights under it and then it seemed to be pulling water out of the Gulf up to it. After about 30 seconds, it lifted up and then took off light a bullet, Very strange and definitely was not a plane or chopper. I had at least 3 friends with me that observed this. I have since been back there on several other occasions at night during the summer and witnessed other flying objects cruising the coastal waters at Destin, Ft Walton Beaches from 1981 through 1985.
Hope this helps !
