Location: Miami, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Saturday night at 915pm my wife and I were watching T.V. . Our son walks in from out side and said there is fire in the sky. I told him the neighbors were setting off fireworks over the lake. He said no. It’s not fireworks. I walked out and saw the object in the air and was trying to come up with an answer for this. A balloon, Blimp but as it got closer I saw a distinctive triangle with different colored lights. Red, Blue Yellow, and a little green. But as it got closer I noticed that it was not only the triangle that the lights were lit. But tiny little lines, not many but definitive lines of dimmer lights that were in the middle of the triangle. I called my wife to see and to get the camera. We started to take pictures of the craft. And soon as the flashes of the camera were going off it seemed to move slowly in the opposite direction north northeast. Then went slowly upward into the clouds and now just blue lights were showing through the clouds.

I can send the pictures if requested. It was 25degrees 37`2210"N and 80degrees22`01,07"W moving SSW, then after the camera flashes NNE and upwards.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he reports that the object's apparent size was equal to 15 times the size of the Moon. He estimates that he was looking at an azimuth of 005 degrees, and at an angle of 30 degrees. He reported that he thought there was solid overcast, at the time of the sighting. He is retired as a professional in the aviation industry. PD))
