|Glowing, pulsing orb seen on a rural road in early evening. Alternated colors. Rose into the air and flew away, leaving a trail.
I was driving home on a rural road in the early evening and noticed a glowing orb floating roughly 150 feet in the air. When I drove nearer, my radio cut out. It was hard to tell the exact size of the object, but I would say it was between 30 and 50 feet in diameter. It alternated between orange, yellow, and white. It appeared to be pulsing.
I pulled over and continued to watch. As I did so, it began moving lazily from side-to-side. Then, it rose slowly higher into the air until it was about 300 feet above the ground. It flew away and disappeared beyond the treeline, leaving a short, hazy trail behind it.
The entire incident took place in roughly a minute and a half.
I did not see it anymore after that.
