Me and my family observed a glowing gold object with a flame line top. it looked a bit like the comet hale bop but it was more defined and pencil like in shape. it was glowing/blazing very bright. at first i thought it might be a comet but i couldnâ€™t find anything online about that. we tried to take pictures of it and the cameras on our phones behaved strangely and we couldnâ€™t get a good shot. while we were trying to fix the problem it disappeared right in front of us. it briefly reappeared for a minute a few minutes later and disappeared again. there were some clouds but the object appeared to be in front of the clouds illuminating them. earlier we had gone for a drive and had a strange experience where it took us an hour and a half to get to shelbyville from our home and only 45 minutes to get back. we remarked on how time felt strange and how it seemed like it took so much longer to get there. we did not stop either way as it was just a drive. it didnâ€™t make sense for it to be so vastly different as the route was basically the same. my husband made a come t that perhaps it was aliens. we returned home at 5:00 pm and saw this strange object at 8:00 pm. i did get some crappy photos of it when it appeared again the 2nd time but the color on the photoa does not match what we saw. it was a brilliant gold color- with an orange cast- very vibrant. the photos makes it appear white and it was not that color.
