The craft hovered directly over a resturant called pier 66 about 50 to 100 feet above it.

It's been many years and I'm not even sure if I have the right year , month and time but once I tell you of the sighting it may coincide with another report of the same sighting if someone else reported it. I know there were others that saw it because several years ago someone I met mentioned that thy knew someone that saw the same thing as I.

It was a craft that was heading south over the intercoastal waterway in ft lauderdale. It looked like a bright light, kinda like a headlight on a plane. A friend and I were traveling east over the intercoastal on 17 st .Looking north I saw this thing and said to my friend, What the heck is that ? I was driving so it was a little tricky for me to keep my eyes on it . Suddenly in a flash it moved to a different locaion which was directly above a resturant called Pier 66. Funny thing about this resturant is that it rotates , or at least it used to and it looks like a round ufo .Pier 66 is like 10 stories high so it looks like a space ship on top of a building. This made us think that whoever was in the ufo might have looked at the building because it really looks like a saucer shaped craft.

Anyway when we were going over the bridge the ufo was roughly the same size as the top of the pier 66 round building and it hovered what looked to be something like 50 to 100 ft above it. It was there for just seconds then it traveled across the sky to a distant location (in a split second) to a point that it looked as small as a star. Then in a split second again it traveled to the top of pier 66 and hovered above it again.Let me tell you this all happened so fast that we were still crossing over the bridge when this happened. Once we crossed the bridge we were heading east towards the ocean and then the craft started to move slowly east . It flew at a slow speed so we were able to watch it as we headed towards the beach.I could only glance at it from time to time because I was driving.My friend was watching it all the way .It flew at an angle and had some what I seem to remember red lights at the bottom. ( my friend drew a picture of it that year , he is an excelent artist ).

Once we got to the ocean I was trying to pull over into a parking area on the beach so I could stop driving and just concentrate on looking at this thing. I pulled over and the craft was just crossing over the road A1A and heading over the ocean. It got over the water and again it a split second traveled across the sky to the point that it looked like a tiny star in the distance and just as fast came right back to the same spot it was just at. Then it slowly started moving east again over the ocean and then there was a big flash of different colors at it was gone.

I wish I could remember the exact date and time but I never wrote it down. I hope someone else has reported this sighting so I can have more eyewitness accounts of it. This sighting made me want to see another one but to this date that was the last time I saw one.

I know more people saw this.


Date is approximate. PD
