Location: Greenbried, AR
Shape: Light
Duration: 1 min 30 secs
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
Orange yellow light in the sky that moved intermittently and stopped then slowly disappeared into night sky.

Me along with two others were sitting on the side of a dirt road in greenbrier Arkansas. We were watching fireworks go off around us, and they were the only light that we could see since we're out in the country. All the sudden, we all see a orange yellow light in the sky closer than an airplane would normally be, but still a ways away. We all watched it for around a minute and a half; it moved for a couple seconds then slowed down almost to a stop and started up again.

After about a minute, the light stopped, as if it noticed we were watching it, and it began to disappear into the night sky away from us.

None of us had our phones, and we cant explain what we saw. It wasn't a firework because it moved steadily and on a straight path. And it couldn't have been an airplane or satellite because it stopped, then within about 5-6 seconds, it disappeared moving away from us.

All we could do is say, "That was a UFO..." and drove home down the road.
