New Castle, Virginia (United States)

Shape: Star-like | Duration: 00:02:00
Source:

Was outside around dusk, Very faint skyline above eastern divide. Saw what I thought was a white light come over the mountain at about 1000ft in elevation above me. At first I thought it was a Military Helicopter until the bright white light turned into a very large orange orb then dissipated into a red dot. There is literally 5 miles of wilderness from my view on rt311 to rt 43. I thought it might have been something launched from Vtech drone field and caught fire and exploded. Watched news, nothing reported, nothing reported on mufon either. I did hear a bit of a rumble after it went from white to orange to red and disappeared. Spent much time in the military and have seen many things in the air but nothing like this event.
