Feb. 18, 2013 at 4:13 PM

MIAMI, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Residents of two Florida counties said they spotted a meteor-like ball of light in the sky shortly after sunset.

Locals in Broward and Miami-Dade counties said the ball of light Sunday night was burning brightly and moving quickly through the sky, The Miami Herald reported Monday.

"Looking over the Biscayne Bay from downtown, I saw an object falling from the sky," Miami resident Brad Greenberg posted to Twitter around 6:30 p.m. "At first, the object was faintly glowing and moving fast but not nearly as fast as a shooting star."

The Broward Sheriff's Office said it received several calls Sunday night about "lights in the sky."
