    I was heading back to work from my lunch break (I work graveyard shift). I noticed an orange streak above the southern horizon. It was a long, thick, deep orange streak. All I can compare it to is a comet or meteorite but with a thick tail. I was trying to figure out what it is and was looking for a side street to pull over on to take a pic (I'm on a motorcycle). I then notice that it's shrinking. The streak is slowly "collapsing" from left to right. By the time I pull over, it resembles a large orange ball which eventually disappears. I continue on my way and it returns. This time it's a lot more faint, not as large, and quickly disappears. The time it took from when I first noticed it until I pulled over lasted over a minute. I cant imagine what it could've been.

    sounds like the empire may have decided to "test out" their new deathstar on the planet mercury.

    did you call the nsa?

    The real question is whether you can call it a lunch break during a graveyard shift
