Large fireball object passes quickly over Biscayne Bay, Miami, Florida

It was nearly 11:00pm. I was in a high rise apartment facing Biscayne Bay. Unit 602. This unit is a two bedroom and has ceiling to floor glass over 1100 square feet of space. It faces Biscayne Bay east, northeast.

Out of nowhere appeared a fireball, amber in color over the Atlantic Ocean. It was travelling from the east to west at an enormous speed. It travelled from the ocean, across Biscayne Bay, over the Hamilton on the Bay Luxury Apartments in under 10 seconds. In diameter, it was the size of a single engine aircraft. It made no noise.

As it passed over head, it cast a shadow of our highrise onto the building 200 feet north of us. It lit up the night's sky.

It was witnessed by my roommate, Timothy E. Kidd. I contacted Miami, Channel 10 News located just a 1/2 mile from The Hamilton. I called the news room within 3-5 minutes of the sighting in order to report it. They said their weatherman who lives in our same building called. He had witnessed the same object. Weatherman, Brian Norcross confirmed his sighting. He is still working at Channel 10, Miami.
