I too witnessed a UFO right after Charlie. At about 2.00 am Sat August 14 2004 I went outside on a deck over looking the Caloosahatchee in downtown Ft Myers power had been out since Charlie went by in Friday evening before.
The storm surge was still pushing the river in and over the seawall as I watched the waves. I suddenly saw a bright flash of green and I mean bright that seemed to come from the northwest. We already knew that Charlie had hit Punta Gorda bad and I thought the flash was from an explosion up there, and thought about what that could have been for a few minutes.
A few minutes later when I had quit thinking about the flash all of a sudden it appeared over the river in front of me - a saucer shaped craft just like you would see on a tabloid cover, it was large I would say 100 ft long and gave off a orange pink light. I judge the size by the Spoil Islands it was near and the size of boats I have seen going by over the years there. And the river is a mile wide there with the channel half way across, this is where the craft hovered over the channel a half mile or so from me after short period of viewing it.
It suddenly left at great speed west down the river towards the Gulf and though it left instantly I saw a green light trail behind it just like the green flash before I believe it was there from the flash cloaked until it prepared to leave I suspect that it being over the channel in the river and I believe it had come from the northwest the mouth of Peace River it was monitoring the storm surge.
