Duration:5 minutes
Large 300 ft long cylinder craft was hovering and had two large multicolored stripes on each triangular end.

July 8, 2012: LARGE CRAFT On July 8, 2012, at approximately 3:30 am, my wife saw a huge craft, about the size of a football field, maybe double that size, about 1/2 mile from our house. We live in the Killian area of Miami and our best estimate is that the craft was near or above the Miami Zoo.

Our dog is very sick and throwing up and she went to open the door in front of our house so the dog can go to the bathroom. When she looked up, in a south-westerly direction, she saw the craft at approximately a 45 degree angle.

Attached is a drawing of the craft made by my wife. It was shaped like a cylinder but with pointed edges on both sides which appeared triangular shaped on each end. The right and left sides, inside the triangle portion of the edges, had two large bands of extremely bright multi-colored lights on each side. The middle part of the craft appeared very light whitish or grey colored.

The craft made an extremely loud noise, much more powerful than if an airplane was standing directly above us. The object remained stationary for about 5 minutes and then it disappeared.

We have attached a drawing of the object, a map showing the location of our house and the location of the Miami zoo area, and a weather chart indicating that the visibility was 10 miles, and that there were scattered clouds at 3:30 am that night. My wife said that she saw many stars in the sky that night and thus she had excellent visibility.

SUMMARY Previous to these events, my wife and I have never seen UFOS or other similar objects in our life.

She is not bothered by this because she is very religious thinks that they were a messenger from God. I, on the other hand, have been freaked out. I started doing research on the subject, have joined MUFON, ordered about 30 UFO books, listen daily to Coast to Coast, etc, etc. I never even knew that these radio programs or UFO organizations existed. I am now consumed by the subject. I need to find some answers and some closure because my wife says that I became obsessed with this issue.

Finally, I am an attorney with the IRS in Miami, FL and my wife was trained as a physical therapist and is a stay-at-home mom. We live in a very nice upper middle class neighborhood in the Killian area of Miami, Florida. We have lead normal dull lives until recently.
