Description: I happened to notice out the kitchen window the ground and trees had an eerie reddish orange cast. I ran outside and saw a round object going from east to south in the sky about 6,000 feet altitude. It disappeared into a large dark cloud and then there was an immediate loud thunder noise with a downpour of rain that lasted about 1 minute. I did not see the object again.
Note: The witness could have seen ball lightning, but this is only a possibility.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
