Fireball inside a cloud on the ocean in the Bermuda Triangle area.

I live on the Ocean in Florida. I took out the dog at 9 PM and noticed a cloud about 5 miles out in the ocean East north East of our East facing condo that was all lit up from the inside as if a continous bolt of lightning was inside the cloud. Then I saw a very intense light like a fireball come out of the cloud horizantaly to the West then go back into it. I ran and grabed my video camera and began taping this when a second cloud lit up. The lights faded after a couple more minutes. As I waited for the lights to return, I could hear a small airplane near by but could not see it. Then it appeared in the street lights as it flew low over some houses south of hear. The plane had NO lights and was coming from the direction of the clouds out in the ocean. I had just enough time to point and film the airplane with the camera on night shot and focus set to infinity. I went to play back the footage and see what I had captured. There was only a small segmant of the cloud on the tape becuase the screen went blue. Im certain I was taping because the adio footage of me and the neigbor talking is on the tape. The screen was blue for the plane footage as well.
