from my lanai i observed a bright glowing white sphere shaped object, like a star moving from the south to the north @ an extreme rate of speed, at an approximate 45 degree angle. as it approached it turned into a flaming orange fireball much larger in size.

i thought at first it was a very large meteorite coming into the atmosphere, witch was very alarming due to its size. it dropped to an altitude of about 30 degrees. the fire that engulfed it began to extinguish from the bottom of the craft to the top in just seconds. there was a small triangle marking on the bottom, possible a way to exit the craft. no symbols or markings, a dull tannish color, no other seams in the exterior.

the front of the craft as it came closer resembled the hull of a boat that staggered half way up. the top of the craft was rounded, no windows, no lights, no external weapons, no wings, no sound, no trail behind it.

it made a severe right angle turn at the same fast speed and disappeared into a big white thunder head and was gone.

at first i thought is was rectangular in shape, but as it banked the turn, it was actually more of a crescent shape.

if it maintained the same direction it would have been miami probably within a few minutes.
