Miami suburb night sighting of a silent, low-hovering obtusely-angled arrangement of reddish lights

Back in 2007, on a clear August night, I saw something in the sky that arrested my attention. My eyes locked on it as I tried to come to terms with what I was looking at.

I was sitting in my car, engine off, driver's side window down - across the field from the elementary school I attended as a child - smoking a cigarette and listening to the radio. By pure chance, I turned my gaze out the window and upwards as I expelled a plume of smoke from my lungs, and there they were . . .

Four reddish orbs, hovering substantially low in the sky, as silent as the surrounding night. They were NOT equidistant from each other but nonetheless arranged in a matter that allowed me to conclude that they formed the frame of an aircraft of some sort. Their placement in relation to one another seemed to suggest, to me, to form a shape of a triangle . . . the lights themselves forming an obtuse angle, stretching from left to right. The four lights were more left to right than up and down, and again, were NOT in a straight line, but formed an angle.

Upon first setting eyes on the spectacle before me, I immediately shut off my radio. I have no recollection of radio interference whatsoever. If there had been, I'm sure I would remember it. There was no sound of traffic in the distance, as it was rather late at night and I wasn't anywhere near a main road or highway but tucked away in a residential neighborhood, blocks from my own house.

The object was dead-silent and hardly moved, if at all. The individual lights themselves didn't budge, nor flicker, blink, dim, or brighten. Their illumination was constant.

After staring up in utter awe for a few minutes, I looked away and reached for another cigarette, found my lighter, lit up, and then returned my eyes to the sight, at which point the lights were much further up in the sky, retreating into obscurity (and thus not as bright as they had been), and soon disappeared altogether.

My best estimate of the time duration of my sighting is 5 minutes tops.

I don't know what I saw that night, and not being a professional in the field of UFOs I don't pretend to identify what I saq but just merely describe what I witnessed. And I will say this . . . in the faces of all those that might henceforth attempt to explain away my experience as if they had all the answers . . . I SAW WHAT I SAW AND NONE OF YOU CAN CHANGE THAT. When you stop and think about it, where we're at in reference to UFOs, that's really all that can be said about a UFO sighting, isn't it?
