Duration:3 minutes
I was coming out of Walmart, driving a Lyft passenger, and we saw this bright orange light get bigger and bigger, then grew a tail. It looked like a hole was in the middle of it, like it was a spiral. The whole thing was bright orange. It left a screwy dark and skinny cloud trail after it burned out.
