|So what just happened a little while ago blew my mind. Coming home from work, I get out my car and I look into the sky and I see Venus (a normal night sky star) but then next to it is a giant orb of multi-color light. No bright. But prominent in the night sky.
As I'm staring at it, it starts pulsating, and I immediately fumble for my phone so I can try and record and take pictures. Which didn't turn out as great as I hoped. But then the singular ball breaks off into the 4 balls shown in the picture and continuous break down into more faint balls. A total of 9, I believe?
But then became more faint as they broke down. Until eventually it become a glowing mist blob that dissipated.
Was truly a breathtaking experience. The one picture turned out better than I had expected. And is beautiful but confusing at the same time. You can see the outline of the colors and in the last few the glowing mist I was talking about. Idk what to make of this. (the photos where enhanced so that way they could be seen better)
