I was taking my evening walk down our driveway and I saw an orange light in the sky. I was thinking it is to big to be a planet it must be an aircraft when I saw it seemingly zig-zag. So I stopped and put my finger up to see if I was imagining things and it seemed to be completely stationary but looking at the sky every night I am sure this is not be a big orange planet but since it isn't moving it can't be an airplane. Then, it just vanished. There was no noise like to be a helicopter or flare or something closer. Now, I was generally concerned but more so because about 3 months ago a teen was leaving our house and said he saw an orange light over our pasture zig-zag across the sky then disappear!! I din't give it much thought until last night. I would like someone to tell me what exactly this was.
