I was driving home from a friends waiting at a traffic light and saw a rusted orange ball move at high speeds in an irrational way.

It was late July the date is approximate, I was returning home to my girlfriend, my friend, and his girlfriend. I was at the intersection by the Casey’s gas station. I saw a rusted orange yet glowing ball in the sky, by the moon, it was dark, but a warm night. There was a full moon, and stars were plenty. So it vastly stood out. It was an orb shape, rusted orange, almost like one mixed literal rust with an orange soda. It was to the right of the moon but soon moved towards the moon and accelerated very fast in a zig zag shape up above the moon than it vanished into nothing. It left a trail, almost like when you move a sparkler back and forth fast enough.

I’ve seen planes of all sorts, I worked with a man who was studying to be a pilot and he’s never heard of anything like that, aside from UFOs.
