Occurred : 7/23/1997 23:00 (Entered as : 07/23/1997 22:00)
Reported: 4/27/2007 10:25:13 PM 22:25
Posted: 6/12/2007
Location: Miami, FL
Shape: Formation
Duration:3 minutes
I was sitting outside in my back yard at about 11:00p.m. I had a rose garden w/a table and chairs placed in the center for recreation. I’d often go out there at all hours of the day, so 11p.m. wasn’t unusual.

At one moment I happened to be glancing at the sky, when I noticed what appeared to be a vertical line formation of about six (if I remember correctly) stars all moving at the same time. It actually took a couple of seconds for it to sink in. I mean if I understand correctly, this isn’t exactly normal star behavior. Six stars in a vertical line, moving all at the same speed.

I watched them for several seconds and then all at the same time they just stopped. They stayed that way for several more seconds before the top one shot off in a northeast direction.

Then after a few more seconds all of the rest of the "stars" scattered in different directions and disappeared.
