On Oct.12,2001 at 1:30am, I witnessed a dark disk over my neighborhood in Miami,Fl.

At approximately 1:30am on October 12,2001 a dark circle hovered over my neighborhood in Miami (Kendall),Fl.

After finishing a movie with my friend, I proceeded to walk him out to his car to say goodnight. As I stopped briefly to turn on the porch lights my friend walked out to the driveway. As I walked out the front door he was standing next to his car staring up into the night sky with his mouth wide open. As I glanced up, I saw what I could only describe as a stealthy black disk almost directly above us. By stealth, I mean that it was silent and as it passed between us and the light cast by the moon over a thin layer of clouds (like fog) it's sillouette became visible. It was perfectly round and blacked-out.

The disk appeared to hover for approximately 5-10 seconds then shifted from left to right in a zig-zag pattern. Suddenly it began moving to the south at a slow rate of speed. Then in a flash, it sped off at an unbelievable rate of velocity.

My friend and I agreed that what we witnessed was exceptional. So much so, that we still talk about it to this day.

I firmly believe that because the atmospheric conditions were just right that evening is the only reason we could see the disk. Without the clouds illuminated by the moon I don't think we would have noticed it.

I always catch myself looking up at night now, wondering if on those dark moonless nights how many disks might be up there.
