GULF BREEZE, Fla. (AP) - People from all over visit Northwest Florida in the hopes of seeing the unexplained -- a UFO.
Santa Rosa County Commissioner John Broxson says he saw a UFO flying above his yard 20 years ago. Another resident wrote three books about his alleged alien abductions and sightings.
But skeptics claim it's either a hoax or something from nearby Eglin Air Force Base that spectators are seeing.
Either way, reported sightings have placed Gulf Breeze on the map for alien fans. Even businesses took advantage. Club 51, an adult-entertainment club, was originally called Area 51. And UFO motors was a used-car dealership that operated in Midway for several years.
Nearby Pensacola even hosted the International UFO Symposium in 1990.
