Here is what took place as I arrived home from work, my wife had been viewing it for almost an hour... As I arrived home Friday my wife was standing outside looking over the slough at the island...and said"'s been here about an hour now...just sound...there it that what you saw before?, she asks...I said "yes, exactly, except it is closer this time"...we watched it in the dead calm of evening for just a minute or two...The fiery orange glow seem to be coming from the center outward and the out "aurora" seemed to rotate and maintained it's intense brilliance. I said "well, should I film it this time?"....she said "No, come in and get settled then go out and film has been here a while a won't be going anywhere"..I told her "No, it will be gone, that's just the way it is" we walked into the blink out into the darkness. So that's the way it is...this is the third sighting for her and forth for me...What is it, I have no idea, but seemd the world has got to start noticing these things....This is the first time she has viewed it alone and so there this sighting is most convincing to her that whatever it is, it not of this world.
