Hi, I’m a huge skeptic who wants to believe, and I think I just saw the stereotypical orb of fire.

I was sitting on my porch, just staring and it looked like it sped up from the ground, and with a falling leaf pattern but going up, it slowly floated up and away.

I filmed it as much as I could, but I’m pissed that my video does not do it justice, because it was an orangish ball of flickering fire, which only looks like a lil orb of light in the video. I freaking out about how surreal this is, and want to say that this is not a hoax, I love this kinda stuff and hate people who hoax because they cloud the truth.

I did a couple instagram stories that I would love to send but in the end, it kinda looks like normal sky lights, but I wish I could have captured it when it was doing this ascending zig zag.
