Hi Chettymo,

I'm curious about something. Have you spoken to Bucket head in reference to this ordeal? I can't believe that someone wouldn't have tried to contact him yet. Or is he just not wanting to speak about it....or did he make up a fib about the whole thing.

You may not know the answer to this, but how did anyone find out he was even out there that day? Did he make that announcement on his radio show back then? Let me know if anyone is clear on this. Maybe I overlooked something.

Thanks smiley



actually i talked to him twice thru email. i sent him the vid in 05 then again when i heard him talking about it again on the air when the russian meteor came rumbling in just a few months agosmiley

some people are trying to tell me it was just lightning. noooooo wayyyyyy ive had lightning strike right in front of me twice (im a landscaper for 25 years and work in the florida crazy weather daily) and for sure 100% was not lightning even though that is seen in the video i made. i think it was an asteroid being zapped by or causing the lightning. this boom, sonic or what ever you want to call it, was the most intense ground shaking sky cracking deafening thing i have ever heard. maybe a sonic boom from the asteroid entering our atmosphere or exploding over my head. rolleyes

Thanks Chettymo for the information on Buckethead. Real quick, for what it's worth ....did he still think even years later that something was going on out there that day?

I'm wondering how anyone originally found out he was out there. Maybe he was talking about it on the airhuh? Guess I could look that up myself somehow....think I might.

If it was a Meteor or Asteroid I think they are worth a pretty penny from what I understand and if Nasa did go out there to retrieve it then of course it could have been to keep the public from digging in the earth to find pieces of it, and to keep a mad rush from taking place. Guess I could understand this to a point. Good job on the footage what ever it was.

Not to sound ridiculous but what if it was one of those USO's that was trying to make a near by pond and missed it. LOL Not funny....sorry.

O.k. Scratch that question I had earlier. I just looked up a few things real quick as I hold my eyes open this late. LOL. A good enough answer for now.... as to how people knew Buckethead had originally made his report. I had just missed this point entirely. But I do see now a report where someone was listening to him on the radio and he had some residents from that area on the Air talking about the ordeal.

Thanks

Always had this night in the back of my mind and did a search and found this thread! I'm no a conspiracy theorist by any stretch of the imagination, and I'm usually not interested in this stuff. But something very strange happened on July 4th. At the time I was in high school and lived off of Winter Park Dr. in Casselberry. I was bending over to light a firework and something knocked me back... Guys, I've never to that day or since experienced anything like that. It knocked my breath out. I'm not saying it was a UFO, or anything else because the truth is, I didn't see any object at all. The sky lit up like it was daytime for about 2 seconds, I had the breath knocked out of me and I stumbled back.. And that was that. It was strange, and it's something I have no explanation for.

Casselberry July 4 case: Anatomy of a UFO rumor

Orlando Paranormal Examiner

July 1, 2013

Residents of greater Orlando were trying to celebrate in spite of the rain on July 4 in 2004. As dark fell, something unusual took place. Exactly what it was continues to be debated nine years later.

Some said it was a crash of a UFO in the suburb of Casselberry, and that NASA orchestrated a cover up. Others suspected it may have been some kind of unusual weather or atmospheric phenomena, possibly involving a meteor of some type. Yet others scoffed, suggesting it was nothing more than lightning and a strong clap of thunder.

'Orlando Paranormal Examiner' made an attempt to piece together what happened, or, at the least, to accurately separate verifiable information from unsubstantiated rumors. Following is what was discovered.

Been a decade now since fantastic stories of a UFO crash rose out of the Orlando 'burbs, and a year since I did an article on it. What happened in Central Florida that Fourth of July and the days that followed ten years ago?

Hello, it's been over 10yrs since this event and I can't believe it's taken me this long to find this discussion!

Here's my background first....Born and raised in central FL, I've lived here for over 30yrs now, mostly in Seminole county in and around Casselberry. I grew up in Oviedo (about 15min from Casselberry) and I know the area very well. I am educated and experienced in aircraft coatings working as a re-coating tech at Sanford international airport. I'm also experienced in optics and photonics, primarily laser systems as well as automated manufacturing. However, I've spent most of my life outdoors in central FL, many years bicycling off road and hiking.

During the time of this event I was living at 604 Fisher rd. just around the corner from the event site. It's about 2000ft from the site.

It is important to note the geographical changes to the Old dog track (not to be confused with the new dog track a couple miles or so down the road) site where this event occurred. The road, Seminola, that passes through what once was the Old dog track did not exist at the time, nor did the housing on the site or the pond. The closest homes to the site were on Vienna dr. and Easton way. The site was in a state of what appeared to be abandonment for some years with no more than a few pieces of construction equipment that were very seldom used. I know this because I used to go down there to watch people ride dirt bikes and atv's on the weekends, the tractors there were very old and rarely moved. There was some chain link fencing prior to the event but the site could be accessed through a number of roads leading in without fencing or gating.

On the night of July 4th, 2004 I was in the master bedroom of the house watching the lighting storm hoping it would stop so we could safely go outside and light off fireworks. I was also listening to Mr. Bucket heads radio show which was broadcasting from Orlando. Here is where it gets interesting. At the moment of the event, around 9pm if memory serves, Mr. Bucket head was taking a live call on air from a caller in Daytona beach some 45+ miles away. When the extremely loud booming sound occurred you hear it on the radio and Mr. Bucket Head say something to the effect of what was that, moments later you hear the boom again on the radio coming through the callers phone. So it definitely was something on a scale large enough to be heard that far away. For me I heard it 3 times, Once directly and twice over the radio. Although there was lightning at the time, this was in NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM lightning, I am certain of this. It shook the foundation of the home unlike anything I've felt, other than a reentry of the space shuttle that is. I did see a brief flash shine through the window just prior to the sound but unfortunately I was looking away and the light's reflection was cast onto a dark maroon wall so I was unable to tell with any amount of certainty the wavelength (color) of the light. I was naturally shocked and my immediate thought was that a nuclear device was just detonated. So I went to our most interior room and continued to listen to Mr. Bucket head's program which for the rest of the night and for several days after was consumed with discussion of this event. I honestly don't recall at this time what I did the rest of that night but I do remember people calling in to Mr. Bucket head's show from down the road reporting that something had exploded at the old dog track site. So the next morning I drove down there to investigate only to be met with newly erected chain link fences about 15-20ft high covered with construction barrier fabric to block any view as well as at least 2 dozen pieces of construction equipment blocking each road entrance to the site. I personally didn't see any military or official vehicles but I did speak with residence who said they had seen them enter and exit the site frequently. I can attest that dump trucks hauled a very large amount of dirt out of the site for at least 1 week after the event, they worked around the clock. Then I saw them bringing in dirt for several weeks after the first week had passed. It was a very suspicious event to say the least and that wouldn't be last time I'd experience something strange in the area....

A little over 2yrs later in December of 2006 the space shuttle had a night launch, it was the first one in several years and I was excited to go out and watch it. I was living less than 5min from the Old dog track site at Sun Shadow apartments at the intersection of sr 434 and 17-92. I was with my girl friend at the time and my cousin. We had been watching the news watching the pre-launch programming and decided to walk down the block to watch the launch from a small grassy field behind the Winn-Dixie backed up to the apartment complex property. We got there just in time to see the shuttle peek over the houses to the East. About 30 seconds into watching we all see a cigar shaped aircraft moving across the sky from the south heading north. It was, I'd estimate between 10 and 15 miles from us and passed directly between us and the space shuttle launch. Now what was very strange about this aircraft was that it appeared to be made of some mostly transparent material similar looking to glass! The only way we actually knew it was there was because of the way it was bending the light behind it. As it came closer to passing between us and the space shuttle you could see more apparently that it was bending the light behind it. I remember like it just happened how we all looked at each other in disbelief and saying DID YOU SEE THAT! It took only about 5 seconds or so to be out of sight and I'd estimate it was traveling at a minimum of 500 mph. If anyone else had seen this aircraft during this 2006 night launch or knows of a thread related to this please let me know.

Hello, CasselberryWitness, and welcome to the forum. Thanks for sharing your experience.

My name is Jack Brewer. I blog a bit about UFOs, and last year I did an article on the Casselberry case:

Casselberry July 4 case: Anatomy of a UFO rumor

If you feel like reading it at some point, I would be quite interested in hearing any comments or questions you might have about it. Perhaps I would also have some questions for you about a few specific points.

Thanks.

Hello JJflash, I read your writeup, excellent job. Thank you for contributing to document this event. I'm certainly open to any questions. I wish i would have had the aerial surveillance devices then that i have now...we would likely have some great footage of the site.

Thanks, CasselberryWitness.

Where did you interpret the reported crash site to be? Would you please give me a current address or landmark?

Also, what specifically led you to believe it was the crash site at the time?

By the way, you may already know this, but you might choose to search databases of reported UFO sightings at websites such as MUFON and NUFORC for more info on the sighting you experienced with your friends. Good luck in your search for more info.

From what i could see around the construction equipment that was blocking most of the entrance, it definitely looked like the officials were concentrating their efforts in the area just south of what is now the legacy park community. A few years ago a went offroading out there in a 4x4 truck i had and the sugar sand out there is extremely loose and, so much so that if you stop moving while driving you'll sink in quite a bit. This makes since because they excavated so much earth from there and filled it in with a bunch of sugar sand. Just last year i stopped at the site to watch some people flying an rc plane and i happened to notice that the area just north of the retention pond seemed to be sinking in, not unlike that of a sink hole. Now obviously sink holes are common in central Florida so that may or may not be related. I'll be in the area later today so I'll try and stop and take a few photos of what I'm talking about.

Thanks for the data base info, I'll check it out. That was most definitely the strangest thing I've ever seen in the sky and I'm no stranger to aircraft. I could go into a full description but that would be best left to another thread. Thanks again.
