Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Miami, FL
Shape: Light
Duration:20 sec.
Summary : As I walked into the backyard of my house in Miami, I noticed a sort of amber /white light moving in the sky.

During the President's State of the Union address, My dog asked me to let him into the backyard so he could do his thing. As I walked into the backyard, I noticed an odd looking light in the Western sky. The light was amber/white in color, and was not blinking. It was located approximately 35-40 degrees above the horizon, and moving in a Southerly direction. I watched the object traverse the sky from due West to approximately W/SW. I was watching the light pretty intensely, and all of a sudden, it vanished. The color of the light reminded me of the color and quality of a vapor street lamp. You know, the kind that is supposed to reduce shadows. It appeared to be moving fairly fast. I have seen many airliners flying in the skies around here, and the object appeared to be moving faster than they normally do. It appeared to be out over the Everglades.
