Location: Miami, FL
Shape: Sphere
Duration:20 seconds
Sphere shaped object which drifted slowly and seemed to disappear and reappear numerous times.

I was driving with my sister and niece when i saw something in the sky very much near the airport. I originally gained interest because it was just too high and too near the airport to be an airplane, being that airplanes are either descending or ascending in that area.

It was a special object which seemed to almost have an aura around it. My sister and I were both looking at it when we mentioned it to one another. It drifted, very slowly, from east to west. It was almost slug like.

As it drifted, it seemed to almost disappear at times but would regenerate right after. My sister claimed to lose sight of it, but i maintained an eye on it. It did that about two times and just shortly after its last reappearance, its completely disappeared again.

The most compelling thing about it was that there were ABSOLUTELY NO clouds in the area which it was in. It was also nothing like an airplane in that it didnt have that distinctive shape nor did it have a trail. Which is a characteristic of airplanes that fly at that altitude. It also moved so slowely that it was surreal.

The closest thing that I could compare its disappearing and reappearing to, would be how a flat object with a lot of surface area is clearly visible, but when its rotated to a side view, its nearly invisible.
