Phenomenon at the Temple Burn

Post by pixie b. bumble » Mon Sep 09, 2013 2:35 pm

During the Temple burn on Sunday, I noticed an orange orb floating above the center peak.... At first I thought it was the moon, but then I realized that the moon was supposed to be a waning crescent that night! It was also a good deal smaller than the moon... Does anyone have any info or good pictures? I have some ideas, but I'm very curious to see what you guys have to say!
Much love
Pixie

Probably just a drone someone had a camera mounted to.

As Dr.Yes said there were tons of drones this year all with different colored bright LED's that's 99.9% probably what you saw
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

I'm thinking it was probably the collected dreams, desires, and hopes of all those who graced the Temple's interior, rising with the smoke and flames, joining up with the spirits and auras of those who have passed before, reaching down to touch the living world, commemorated and remembered by those below. I'm hoping one of those drones has a good photo of it.

It may have been an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of underdone potato. There's more of gravy than of grave about it, whatever it was!

Actually, now that you mention it, I saw that balloon as well. It was tethered at about 8 or 9 o'clock outside the ring of seated spectators but the wind pulled it out over the crowd.

I mistook it for the moon for a moment, too.
