What if we’re not only being visited by UFOs, but we’re also being watched? That’s the theory among some in Florida who say sightings of small glowing orbs are proof that alien drones are here keeping tabs on planet Earth.
To verify these claims, Ryder, Ben and James travel to the Sunshine State to look into these reports. They’re intrigued by recent video of the space shuttle Endeavour blasting off from the Kennedy Space Center. In it, there’s a small object that appears to be trailing the shuttle on its journey into space. Looking for leads, the team organizes a small gathering of launch enthusiasts who share their experiences of seeing these small objects. What’s remarkable is the similarity between all these stories: The witnesses describe small glowing orbs that are able to do remarkable things in flight. The orbs hover, they dance, they shoot across the sky and come to complete stops. What’s more, these eyewitnesses say they’ve seen them around Kennedy Space Center. Armed with that information, Ryder, Ben and James launch a daring mission to surveil the Space Center in hopes of seeing one of these objects.
Believing that NASA may know more about these small objects than they’re letting on, the team goes to meet with someone who was on the inside. Dr. Edgar Mitchell was the lunar module pilot for the Apollo 14 mission. As the sixth man to walk on the moon, Mitchell was ensconced at NASA for years.
As the team pushes on with their investigation they travel south, right to the very edge of the mysterious Bermuda Triangle to meet a man who said he had a very close encounter with one of these objects. This man, Santos Bruno, said that he spotted one of these objects in his front yard. He tells the team it was a glowing orange-red object, shaped like a football and that it hovered in his front yard for several minutes before moving across the street and then shooting off into the sky. What’s more, Bruno tells them this object left burn marks in the grass. The team takes samples of the area, believing that there may be residual evidence. If the team can determine why it burned, they may also be able to say what burned it.
From there, the team moves out into the vast and forbidding Everglades. Inside this alligator-infested river of grass there’s a local who’s reported seeing a similar object. Johnny Cobbler is a local legend in the Florida swamps. He’s an alligator wrestler, musician and all around raconteur whose story mystifies the team. Looking for answers, they travel with Johnny deep into the Everglades to where he had this encounter.
Traveling by airboat they arrive at the remote location. Though they’re miles away from civilization, they aren’t alone. Surrounding them is a reptilian army of snakes and gators, which soon proves perilous as Ryder, Ben and James try to find out whether Earth really is being spied upon by a fleet of alien drones.
