Just joined up because of what happened earlier tonight. A strong storm system rolled through the Raleigh/Durham area of NC tonight and wiped out
power in parts of Durham for about two hours. Within minutes of the power being turned back on, we saw a bright orange light slowly emerge from
horizon of the woods and travel over our neighborhood. It was making no sound and as soon as it hit a certain height in the sky immediately started to
move faster. Within a minute the orange light had become smaller, flashed twice and disappeared.
I was wondering if you have any insight into what this could be. There have been numerous reported sightings of orange balls just light this,
sometimes during storm systems and sometimes during meteor showers.
We tried taking the best pictures we could. Our neighbors saw the same thing and were visibly distraught. Since I am new I am unable to load the
pictures. There was no visible tail coming from the light. When we magnified the pictures we saw something very interesting. It looked like there was
one orange light and two red lights under it. However that could have been the movement of the camera.
Thanks for the help!
