CAPE CORAL, FL - The strange and unexplained filled the skies over Cape Coral this weekend. Some viewers wrote in and even shared video of bizarre lights. They called the sightings UFOs.

Wednesday afternoon, Cape resident Pete Maccio told us about his experience.

"I never saw anything like that before," remarked Maccio.

Maccio, who lives in Cape Coral, said he saw bizarre lights flicker this weekend in the early morning off the South Cape.

"They were small lights that hovered over the water at slow sleep and then they disappeared," said Maccio.

He and others speculate the unidentified flying objects seen high above the yacht club could be alien life forms. Richard Gobi, who visited the area Wednesday, said he isn't sold on that idea.

While he thinks there is extraterrestrial life somewhere in the vast universe, he said they're probably not visiting Cape Coral. He countered the lights are probably just a big misunderstanding.

"Probably reflection. Something that's in the waters that reflects in the sky," explained Gobi.

We reached out to the MUFON organization, the Mutual UFO network, which tracks suspicious spottings. They told us many of the recent reports filed with them across the state could be explained by a sky lantern.

The increasingly popular contraption uses hot air to float high into the sky. At Fort Myers' American Discount Firework, store owner Chris Whited told us when he first saw one from a far took a second look.

"They're going to think this is a UFO," said Whited. "It will get to where it's a pen prick of light because of the distance and height."

While we may never be certain the lights in Cape were manmade, some told us they plan to look up with more watchful eye and perhaps spot something surreal.
