Location: Miami, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 minutes
((NUFORC Note: A launch of a Titan 4 rocket from Cape Canaveral was conducted at 00:29 hrs. on this date. We suspect that the launch was the cause of the several reports NUFORC received from multiple points in Florida. We post the reports to illustrate how easy it is to misidentify a relatively commonplace event. Even we were intrigued by the reports, when they first were submitted, and it took us approximately 12 hours to identify the apparent source of the reports. PD))

4 people observed a streak in the sky, a light shot ahead, then the light in the rear broke into 2..then 1, by 1, they all burned out

4 of us (including a LEO) observed a streak come up (slightly from the ground direction) and then go sideways (east) A light shot ahead and it was almost as if the object (the faint triangular outline) was stretching. That light burned out and the light in the rear broke into 2. Then one at a time they each burned out as the mass moved across the sky. Amazing!!!
