|Orb that popped in and out of the atmosphere twice
I was driving down highway 76, when I saw a slow moving object. It was very bright and the color was a reddish, brown solid color. I didn't know what to make of it. So I shined my powerful mag lite at the orb, when all of a sudden it released a cloud of white smoke. There was no moon out, but the cloud was very bright, after two minutes it went out of the atmosphere, and then it popped back in again, and started to show more smoke like cloud. The clouds were small and lingered for about ten minutes after it vanished. It almost reminded my of a comet entering our atmosphere, but it popped in and out twice, I grabbed its attention after the second pop in. Cause my flash light was on it and it traveled very slowly then it left. no strobing light and it was far enough to remind me of a star, that left a cloud in the ozone.I was the only one who saw it and I was to nervous to take a picture.
