Orange light moved effortlessly through cloudy night sky, flickered, and vanished.

I was in my backyard playing catch with my younger brother Thanksgiving night, when a bright orange light in the sky caught my eye. It was a cloudy night, and I could see the difference of density as the light moved through them.

In the thin sections, the light didn't seem to emit any glare. It was as if I was looking into a source of light, rather than the having the light shine outward. The movement was fluid and sporadic, unlike anything I've ever seen before.

After about 30 seconds of unearthly flight, it came to a hover. I witnessed the light dim until it was barely in sight, then return to its original brilliance. It did this three or four more times, and then vanished. The event matched many encounters I've read about prior to witnessing one with my own eyes. Truly amazing.
