Invisible Jet or I'm Blind.

Southwest Miami, Fl. Nov.17. About 4:45 Pm. Sun getting low in the west. Bright clear sky. I live about 20 miles northwest of Homestead reserve Air base. I'm acustome to seeing & hearing military jets from there. They have a distinct sound from a civilian jetliners. Working in the front yard I heard that military jet sound relatively close overhead as usual. Upon looking to see one of the beautiful F-16's or F-18's I was surprised to find I couldn't see anything. The loud engine sound traversed from southeast of me(Homestead) to the northwest. I'm aware that higher flying craft can be somewhat ahead of the apparent location of the sound. I searched the sky for the entire time of the relatively slow, directly overhead passage. I have excellent eye sight and have seen very high flying jetliners so high that the sound couldn't be heard, but this is just the opposite. This is the 3rd time I've experienced this in the last 6 months. Interested to know if anyone in this area has experienced this strange situation.
