Thomasville, North Carolina (United States)

Sighted on Friday 03. June 2016

Shape: Flash | Duration: Undisclosed
Source:

I had stepped outside to smoke. The sky was partly cloudy with stars visible. I noticed a strange orange glow close to the horizon off to the south. It would flash then cut off then flash again in a few minutes. I heard no sound so I ruled out lightning. I called my roommate outside to see if he saw it and he did. Neither one of us could identify it as we had never seen anything like it it. It lit up a large portion of the sky. After about an hour and a half it slowly faded and dissapeared.
