Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, The object emitted other objects, The object emitted beams, The object changed color
Orange fireball emitting smoke with bright white light, while hovering and spinning.

I was outside smoking, when I noticed a orange light floating north closer to town. It suddenly stopped in mid air, the orange faded to white, and became very bright.

It looked like it started spinning while releasing some kind of mist or smoke. I think it was spinning because the bright white light kept highlighting the smoke/mist.

While still letting off the must it started moving west. Then its lights went out, smoke stopped and it was gone.

This happened right before dawn and I was able to watch few a few seconds till I couldn't see it anymore.

I tried to get video but happened too fast.

I've never seen anything like this, and it did blow my mind. There was no sound either just a strange fireball looking light.
