Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
There was an orange light flying in the sky that was changing direction very rapidly.

A friend of mine sent me a short video on Snapchat of an orange light that was flying around in the southern sky. Looked at the video and walked outside to see if he was just trying to play a practical joke. When I looked to the south I saw exactly the same thing he sent me, a bright orange light quickly changing directions and leaving streaks in the sky. The streaks last about four or five seconds. One of my cats was outside at the time and was frantically trying to get inside as well as hissing at the object in the sky. The object was flying and changing direction too quickly to be a plane, a helicopter, or a drone. There was looked like a commercial airliner in the sky at the same time.
