K and C were driving down the street after receiving a phone call from a friend about a strange light appearing above his house. K and C proceeded to drive over to his house to witness the light for themselves. However, as they neared the trailer park where he lives they noticed a strange contrast in the night sky and its coloration. On the left side of the street the sky was purest black. On the right side the sky was orange with a white strip across the bottom and darker as we looked higher up. As we drove through the trailer park the sky on our right proceeded to grow more orange. The previous orange shade intensified. Driving down the streets of the trailer park any where the vehicle went the streetlights around it dimmed and continued to do so until we drove away. As we drove out of the trailer park the sky seemed to darken and the orange light gathered behind C's car. Driving down the main street back to K's house we were stopped by a train. A light that was previously white was now yellow and while K and C were waiting for the train to pass other colors started to appear mixed in with the yellow. C rolled her window down to see if it might have been the fog that was starting to roll in. It wasn't. She asked a car on the other side of her and the occupants of the vehicle said they did not see any light. K and C both saw the light. The train passed and we drove on. The fog had gathered to become slightly obscurant and thus we missed her street the first time around. We drove a few more feet to the roundabout and turned around. We turned onto the correct street and stopped for approximately 3 seconds to roll the window up. There was a shadow behind the car yet when K and C looked there was no one, and nothing. There was likewise nothing there as we pulled away. We continued along the street until pulling into the driveway and walking into the house.
