  • Me and my sister saw a ball of light…yellowish orange in color…about 3 weeks apart in the same location from our porch in monroeville Alabama.
    It appeared to be pretty close to the ground.
    Underneath the clouds because it’s a cloudy night and you can’t see the stars.
    I’ve done a lot of research and can’t find anything similar.
    What could it be?

  • I was driving with my husband on I90 in Washington state, going westbound and saw a pretty large green mass outlined in red moving in a downward arc across the sky. It happened so fast and seemed to disappear into the surrounding mountains. It was amazing! I have been looking up possible explanations and found your site so I thought I’d write about it.
