UFO Cruises Miami, Florida: 01/01/2013

UFO video just in, from Miami, Florida...

Mufon report:
My roommate and I returned from dinner, pulling into our driveway in Miami, Florida at approximately 9:20 PM on 1/1/13. About three or four seconds after exiting the truck, we both looked up over the roof, having seen a bright light that wed never seen there before (approximately 25 degrees above the horizon line over our rooftop). As we continued to watch, it moved directly over us. It was at this point that I pulled out my cell phone and began videotaping. The first five or six seconds, I am holding the camera directly up in the air above my head, facing due east. After that, I rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise, so I was facing due north). During this time, the object was moving smoothly and at the same pace wed seen since the beginning, heading NNW and ascending much more rapidly than it was traveling in the NNW direction. 
The last two to three seconds that it was in our sight, it suddenly changed direction slightly, accelerated and ascended at an unbelievable speed and winked out. As heard on the video, there is no audible noise emanating from the object. We kept quiet during the taping so as to not step over any other ambient noises. The sound of our dog (who was inside the bedroom at the time) is the only noise. We are not sure if our dog was reacting to us pulling up into the driveway (he usually does not react that loudly), or if he was reacting to the object. 
 We live near the air force base, a local airport and are directly on the helicopter flight path between the two flight ranges, so we both are extremely familiar with the sounds and appearances of helicopters, commercial jets, private airplanes, and military craft. Because we are on the edge of a rural area, we can usually see them clearly enough to easily identify them. As a frame of reference, a helicopter flew overhead just 12-15 minutes later at about 500 ft. overhead. I could easily make out both rotors, the sound, the blinking lights, the searchlight, etc. as well as clearly the shape of the helicopter, even in the dark night sky. 
 The object was a tall cylinder shape. It had no visible protrusions, appendages or identifying marks. I would estimate the size as roughly 10 tall with a diameter of approximately 6. The object glowed with a white light. The bottom glowed with a white and orange pulsating light that emanated in a lens flare pattern about 2 out sideways from the bottom of the object. No light seemed to emanate downwards, even as it flew over our rooftop and driveway. I am analytical by nature, so upon sighting the object, I began eliminating things that I knew it wasnt.
 Clearly, it was not a private airplane (propeller driven or jet), a helicopter or a military craft, since the shape and lack of sound at 400-500 feet away would eliminate those. I have seen several military practice night jumps, so I am familiar with how they appear, so I was able to eliminate that possibility (night jumps also descend, not ascend). Flares are easy to recognize and it was clearly not a flare (based on numerous factors). A weather balloon or very large Chinese lantern seemed the likeliest fit, but the size, shape, speed and rate of ascent made those unlikely. The rapid change of direction and acceleration at the end of the event clearly eliminated those possibilities. Even my roommate, who does not believe in the existence of UFOs or the possibility of life on other planets, was at loss to come up with any other explanation.

For such a long description i actually hopinng the video would take longer to watch than it did to read about. If it flew over head why stop filming.

Why did you stop shooting when the object was still visible overhead? Why only a few seconds of video?

Very interesting.

Can u see the blinking lights? Looks like a plane to me

Hey. Is this a blog where you post user submitted UFO videos? Cause I got the most weirdest footage of what I think is a UFO (although I later figured it probably was an airplane, the footage makes me think otherwise.) If you could, please answer ASAP.

I can't SAY, I've seen many ufos.
but I can say I've seen one, in my
time! One that took me by surprise
and stopped me, with amazement at what I was looking at.WHAT was I
looking at,was soon seen by the others in the car with me,as we all
scrambled out to have a better view
because this thing was very high
up by now,but at first view through
the front windscreen of the car,we
saw, what appeared to be a very strong light in front of us, that at first was thought to be an oncoming aircraft,and had no reason
to react,but when this bright white
light, changed to a bright orange
light,with no aircraft at all seen.

THAT!stirred us up with: what the
blazes is that???

What we saw from the footpath,was
about the size of the street lamp
on the other side of the road, and
appeard to be quite aways up! this
bright orange ball,what ever it was
seemed to be sparkling with what looked like flames!? hard to tell
with our own eyes.No tale on this thing,just a bright, round, orange ball! we watched this slowly move
to the East, as it grew smaller in size, till it couldn't be seen anymore.Was it a satellite? Too large we thought!but the trajectory
was the same.Not a plane or helicopter,no way!!

The impression I had was,very high
& very large.It was a clear day that day, no clouds, blue sky, but this sighting we had, was after sunset,and still with good light!!

To this day, we still don't know what it was.It could have been in space, or in the upper atmophere
or there could have been a perfectly plausible explanation!!
At that time we weren't thinking ufo.but let's face it, that might have been JUST,what we were seeing
and didn't realize it at that time.
Not everyone is interested in ufo. so there is no talk of it,and even today,its uncomfortable to bring it up, without getting THAT LOOK!little green men:)at least in some circle!?....So it IS appreciated to talk to those, whom are in the know,and growing as time goes on, with REALUFOs:).............

I would like to answer the first two questions about why I stopped filming. The answer is actually pretty stupid. I was holding the phone directly overhead as I filmed. At that point, I was still a bit unsure if what we were seeing was a UFO (It was only 500 or so feet in the air at that point and silent - so, not a plane or helicopter). When the craft suddenly turned a few degrees to the northwest, accelerated and blinked out of sight in less than a second, I almost dropped the phone. Not wanting to break my expensive smartphone again, I lowered it. Also, I really, really wanted to let out the "Oh, shit!" I had been holding back from saying, since I did not want to be the guy on every video that says that (told you the answer was pretty stupid)! I had told my roommate to be absolutely silent during the filming, so that you could hear that no noise was coming from the object. If I had broken my silence during filming, she would never have let me hear the end of it!

Before I came to my senses and realized that I needed to videotape this, we sat and stared at the object right over our house for a good 20-30 seconds. I am still beating myself up over the fact that it took me that long to whip out my phone and start shooting. I could have at least gotten a few fantastic still shots when it was only 300-400 feet away.
