Location: Miami Beach, FL
Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
Two bright lights hovering around Downtown Miami skyscrapers for 20 minutes, then descended into the ocean together.

I was on the roof of my apartment building (17 floors up) in Miami Beach and looking out towards the Downtown Miami skyline. I noticed two stationary bright lights alongside different skyscrapers. Since the Miami airport is also visible from that point of view, I first thought they were far-off planes, though no other planes in the sky radiated anywhere near as much light.

I immediately dismissed this first theory when I noticed the lights start hovering freely around the skyscrapers, sometimes in a circular manner, other times floating from the base to the tip of buildings (and vice versa) in a matter of seconds. I've never seen a human aircraft of any variety move so freely and quickly as these lights did.

They continued to circle the buildings for about 15-20 minutes until they both suddenly rose into the sky together and descended into the bay/ocean.
