Wierd object flying above Miami skies.

I first saw the object in the western skies over Hialeah, Florida (in Miami) on Saturday night, October 14th, 2001 from 12:30am-4:00am. The object appeared like a star but was zig-zagging in the night sky. When I looked through my binoculers, I noticed that it appeared much like a jellyfish with two limbs and a light source inside. I contacted a friend who lives about 10 miles further west from me and he confirmed the object in the same westerly direction. The object also would dissapear behind clouds making the object higher in the sky then it really appeared.

My family witnessed the object along side of me and discribed the object as "a jellyfish-like object with two legs and a light inside". I thought it looked more like a frog with two legs and with a light inside. We all agreed that it looked and moved much like a kite would and not a weather balloon. Weather balloons are usually oval or tear-drop shaped. Additionally, how could a kite fly well above the clouds? If anyone else witnessed the same thing feel free to contact me so we can exchange experiences.
