|Miami Florida Jan 31/2006 On Wednesday January 31, 2006 at around 2:00 pm Eastern Standard time, while I was eating lunch outside a restaurant located in downtown Miami, (Brickell Financial District) I looked up in the sky and I saw 3 white steady bright lights in a triangle formation. These white lights really caught my attention, the weather clear with and with good visibility. They appeared to be very close, maybe at about an altitude of 10,000 feet. They did not move for about 2 or 3 minutes then one of the white lights started moving, breaking the formation and making a straight line formation. Then suddenly I saw several other smaller lights (star-like) appearing in the sky and moving towards these 3 big white bright lights, some were steady and others were traveling at fast speed. I was able to count at least 25 of them, but I saw more appearing from the north east, it looked like it was an invasion. I’m a private pilot and I’m 100% sure that it was not an plane nor an air show. I have never seen anything like that before because of the way they were moving, and clearly it couldn’t have been a plane because there were no red or green blinking lights. Whatever it was it seemed as if they were observing us. After a while about 10 to 15 minutes later they all starting moving and dispersing from the sky; my friend was trying to take pictures with her camera phone but the resolution was very poor. I later went back to our office and I tried to contact the FAA to report it, but I was not able to get in touch with them, I called the 24 Hour Safety Hotline at 800-255-1111 and all I got was a recording but I never left a message about this incident.
I hope this report is helpful to you, and should you find something relating to our sighting please let us know.
