Large fire shape in Homestead Florida sky. Haze around object seen in photo.

Large fire shape in night sky, almost looked missile type, but no con trail behind it. Object flew from the south west horizon to the north west horizon until it was out of sight. I was able to call my step-son of eight years old to come look at the object. He was very scared and said it looked like an asteroid coming to earth. I was able to take a couple of photos of the object, one with a iphone and another 2 with a canon camera. None of great quality. I have seen many objects in the night sky, but this is the first to say I have no idea what the heck this was. Contacted the national weather service to see if any weather instruments where being used in the area. (None) No abnormal weather conditions exist from forecast office out of Miami.

Photo- fire like from a missile, but not visible aircraft or con-trail. Haze around fire.
