Location: Alpharetta, GA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 Minutes (apporx)
Orange lights, smoke or fog.

At 3:56AM I woke up and glanced at the digital clock on the night stand. I picked up the remote and clicked on headline news and propped my head up on two pillows.

My patio faces a southern direction. There is glass paned door onto the patio off of the master bedroom to the left of the bed. Looking at the television, the door is reflected in the mirror on my dresser.

The weather had been stormy but was quiet at this time. Directly behind my home there is a small protected wetland.

While watching the news I became aware of a bright orange light, past the patio, illuminating the glass panes on the door. I first saw it through the reflection on the mirror. I turned and looked at the door and could see it at an angle through the door as well. I looked back toward the mirror as the view was more directly at the door and saw clouds of smog or fog drift in front of the orange light. Both the light and the smoke disappeared briefly and then only the light reappeared for a few seconds and then it was dark as if nothing had happened. At no time was there any sensation of heat and there was no sound. The smoke/fog first moved upward, and then from left to right.

I have never seen or experienced anything like this. I did not feel fear. I thought to myself that it might be a premonition of a fire but the dismissed the thought. Oddly at one point I thought I should get up and look out - but then decided I didn't need to worry about it. Very strange.

This morning there was nothing outside that looked amiss. An internet search did not find any others reporting a similiar incident at the same time although there was a rocket on the east coast that caused some odd lights, but that is too far from me to be related. There did seem to be a pattern of orange lights and crafts reported in this state.

While I have no idea what this actually was, I feel compelled to report it somewhere, that it may be important.
