Shape: Light
Duration: 5-10 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color
I saw an orange and purple, orb floating just above the horizon. It was suspended above a field at the end of dark road near my house. At first I thought it may have been a distant planet, but then realized it was hovering within our atmosphere.

As I drove down the road toward the open field to get a better look, the orb began to shimmer and starburst, splintering in all directions. Just as I closed in on the end of the road where the field opens up, I realized the orb was much closer to the ground, approximately a thousand yards.

At that moment the orb, within seconds, became pixelated and dissolved before my eyes.

My adrenaline had been pumping, but I had trouble recalling the moment before I drove down the road to get a better look. It was hard to discern if I had been watching for 30 seconds or 10 minutes. I would say the event lasted between 5 and 10 minutes in total.
