I saw orange light in the Southwest. I thought it was a helicopter because it was moving slow coming toward me. I noticed no lights were blinking and that the light was pulsating. It flew straight over my head and never made a sound. The orange glow fizzled out and I could make out a metallic orb. It disappeared into clouds. The whole event lasted 2 minutes. By the time I was ready to video it with my Smartphone, it was gone. Later that night, I saw helicopters circling. Also heard the sound of thunder from a distant storm, but the rumbling of the thunder abruptly ended instead of gradually rolling. Weird. This was not a plane or helicopter or drone. It was not a comet, I have seen plenty of them. I cannot explain what it was, but it did not move very fast.
