UFO checked us out on the water at night while cruising to Miami, Oct 1992
My husband and I were returning home on our 28' boat from a trip to the florida keys. We had just past Elliot Key at about sunset and were heading north to Miami. We were just cruising at a slow pace past the inlet before Key Biscaine when my husband said, "What is that light following us?" It was very dark at this point and I looked way up and back and saw a light above us. It was a strange light as it didn't have any glare and didn't seem to be connected to anything. There was no noise as from a ship or a plane or helicopter. The light just kept getting closer and closer and bigger and bigger. I could look straight into it without any it hurting my eyes. The whole boat was engulfed in light as it came right up on us. My husband kept getting quite excited and screaming, "What is it? See if you can make anything out." I thought I could see an outline of something, but there was no noise as if a craft were approaching. No red or green lights, no propeller sounds...nothing. Just the sound of our boat cruising and my husband screaming. I said, "Just hit it, just get out of here!!" I was afraid a large ship was upon us or something. My husband hit the throttle and I braced myself for the thrust of the boat. As I did this, the light flew up into the sky as fast as lightning and we could see it moving into the galaxy farther and farther away. We have told few people about this incident as we don't want to look like nuts. But we both know for sure that a UFO was checking us out. We went back the next day to see where we were exactly--we found a marker we passed along the way--there is nothing out there...nothing.
Witness indicates that date of incident is approximate. PD
