Location: Jay, ME, USA

Characteristics: Aura or haze around object

Large Bright orange/yellowish orb, resembling a large star floating throughout the sky.

At work I saw something out my window in the corner of my eyes, I stopped the machinery that I was using and got out to observe. I noticed a bright orange/yellowish light it was strange to my because it was significantly brighter than every other star in the clear sky. I began watching and noticed it was hovering around in all different directions, not super fast but fast enough to see the significan motion. As I snapped some pictures of the orb like brightness, and watched for several minutes as it moved from Far Eastern horizon to almost 12 o’clock over my head.

Every time I switched to record video of the anomaly my camera would focus in and capture the star and then disappear off screen. The whole time it was visible to the naked eye but would come and go on my screen, I had an every feeling and extreme curiosity. Never seen anything like it. What was this object?! There seemed to be a slightly smaller white light making similar movements almost mirroring the orange light in its erratic “floating” motions. It may be worth noting that early in the evening me and another witness saw a large burst of light that lasted about 4 seconds, it was similar to a huge shooting star but more like a white fireworks display-- the other witness is an engineer--we both agreed that it was strange but figured it was a sizable meteor--agreeing that it was bigger, brighter and lasted longer than any shooting star we’ve seen and exhibited a crackling, fire like display as it wizzes thru the sky.

Man, I wish I knew what it is that I’ve seen in the sky tonight. There’s got to be an explainer.
