|Orange light skips through sky near nuclear plant.
I was outside in the yard and I glanced to the south south east, toward the vicinity of Arkansas Nuclear One, where a bright orange round light, which appeared to be several miles away, caught my attention. It was approximately 1,000 feet in altitude, not too far above the hill on the horizon. As it moved at a good clip in a westerly direction, I noticed that it was making suttle upward jerking motions. I heard no sound. I would say the size was 1/6th or 1/8 the size of the full moon. No blinking lights on object. It disappeared behind trees and even though I ran down the driveway to the road to get to a better vantage point, I never saw it again. My location is 530 feet above sea level.
