Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail
|Strange disc of light with trails of orange/pink on either side sighted above mountains.
Driving along Highway 7 South I spotted an unusual object in the sky. It appeared to be a glowing disk shape in the sky. On either side were two trails of orange/pinkish light, trailing down. At first it looked very much like a shuttle launch or something similar, except that the shape that the trails of orange/pinkish light were coming from an object that didn't really look like any craft I've seen.
Then I wondered if some kind of large balloon may have been set aflame (it's far fetched, but that might have explained the weirdness of the thing). he problem now, as I pulled over to check, was that it didn't move. It was almost a fixed point. I stayed there for 10 minutes or so before I left, simply because I was busy and hoped I could capture it from my home, only 3 minutes away.
Unfortunately, living amongst the mountains made it impossible to see the object as it was now blocked by a nearby mountain.
Also of note is the fact that it did not make any sound.
I don't know if it were a craft, but it's certainly a phenomenon unknown to me.
