|Orange light over Hawaii Kai, Honolulu
Driving east on Lunalilo Home Rd. in Hawaii Kai, Honolulu, I noticed a bright orange light in the sky over Kamehame ridge and Koko Head Crater. It was the same hue of orange as the sodium vapor street lights used in Honolulu, but larger, and much brighter. I thought maybe it was a reflection of the street lights, but after changing my viewing angle in the car several times I confirmed it was not a reflection. It was much higher than the ridge, so it was not a street light.
My girlfriend was in the passenger seat, and asked what I was looking at. I said, "that orange light in the sky." And she replied, "oh the one that just split into two?" Indeed, it had split into two.
They seemed to be hovering. I couldn't judge the size of the lights, since I couldn't determine how close or far they were. They then merged back into one.
The light blinked on and off several times, then disappeared altogether. There were no clouds in the sky at the time, and winds were calm.
