Appearance / Description of Object(s)
They looked like orange lights. Not overly bright, kind of muted, but still the most noticeable thing thing in the sky except for all the blinking strobes on the commercial airline traffic in the area. The first set we saw was 7-10 ships flying in a very tight formation, something like what the blue angels do at an airshow. They were not in perfect formation, but almost perfect which made me feel like they definitely weren't connected and also not being piloted by a computer. They really looked plans flying maneuvers but at speeds that where completely impossible for a plane. There was no sonic boom. I couldn't determine speed/altitude/size of the objects, just that they where moving insanely fast and seemed to be quite large, but also quite high. All the airplanes in the area which are going 200-400 knots as they arrive or leave Miami international airport where basically floating at a relative stand still, so by seeing them and seeing these lights the speeds they where reaching where beyond human capabilities.
Description of Area / Surroundings
On Miami Beach. Urban area. Was on 2nd st right on Miami beach.
Full Description & Details
Me and my girlfriend where walking on the beach at about 2am. We both saw a meteor go thru the sky and decided to lay down and look up for a while and try to see another one. After about 10 minutes i got bored of looking because we have extreme light pollution in Miami and you can only really see the biggest meteors which are quite rare except during showers like the perseids or Leonids.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No. Ive been thinking about it non-stop.
I am a professional photographer. I also host a web show for a large fortune 1000 corporation reviewing computer hardware.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I've always believed in aliens and they're existence. I did not however believe in UFOs on earth. My "belief" I'd that they probably exist but they're not visiting earth. My small little mind wants to discount what I saw and find a logical explanation, but I can't lie to myself about what I saw. It was unexplainable and un real. None of the videos I've ever seen have made me think "that cant be anything but a UFO" like what I saw last night.
I went crazy googling, checking Twitter, news sites, etc for someone else who saw what i saw at the same time. But alas, it seems no one else saw it or at least no one reported it. Most people at the beach at 2am are either drunk or intoxicated so it would probably get written off as just seeing things but I was sober as a bird, very rational, and I'm well versed in aviation, military planes, and science in general. I can't explain what I saw. I won't give-up trying to disprove what I saw, but for now I can't find a terrestrial explanation.
