Location: Miami, FL
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Red light seen flying and hovering over neighborhood then light went off and oval/disc shaped object seen flying away.

On January 1st 2018 between the time of 12:15-12:30 am. While walking to my cousins house, returning from watching fireworks from the Belle Meade area of Biscayne Bay in Miami Florida. I was walking West on NE 72nd Street when I noticed a very bright red/orange light coming from the NW direction. The object from the best I could tell was far away across Biscayne Boulevard over another neighborhood. When it got directly in front of me, still far away it stopped and hovered in one spot for several seconds. I could not hear if it made any sound and it was still very, very bright red. I thought it was a helicopter but it made no noise and didn't have search lights. The light/s shut off on the object and it flew South in a straight line. I could still see it and tracked it for a few seconds before it was out of site. It looked gray and was oval/disc shaped. I told my wife what I was seeing right when the lights went out, so she nor any of the others in our group ! witnessed it. The entire event was took place in less than 30 seconds.
