Mystery Object near Key West

I was just cruising around on Flash Earth and saw something that struck me slightly strange. At first glance, the object just below Key West in the image above seems to be just a large ship, but upon reflection, it seems too large when considering comparative scale. You can see a ship on the right, leaving a normal wake behind it, but the wake left by this object on the left is not only impossibly massive, it seems to be stirring up the seas from below, almost as if a giant submarine had just emerged from laying dormant at the muddy surface.

If we flog our perspective into looking at it another way, it could also be seen as a rocket lifting off, although there's nothing there to use as a launchpad, not even a reef.

Any thoughts from the peanut gallery? You can view it here while you still can before the satellite imagery changes.
