Lots of reports, decades after my orange orb sighting, of orange orbs. Differences however: my sighting involved one UFO — the orange orb — it was very large, and seemed to be waiting for us. Followed us. Or so it seemed. Even seemed to read my thoughts.

Then, the aftermath. Realizing we had missing time. The dreams of being paralyzed, trapped in white beam of light. And so on.

So I wonder, how many witnesses of these smaller orange lights have had other strange experiences in connection with these orbs?

There are some cases of people seeing orbs of varying colors that go beyond a mere witnessing of a UFO.

I found this woman’s reaction to seeing an orange orb interesting:

Wakefield, Rhode Island

On October 16, 2016, from 8:15 to 8:30 PM EDT, a woman witnessed an orange molten object shining multiple lights onto the ground in a searching manner. Moon gazing at the “blood moon,” the woman reported the moon was suddenly blacked out by a “sparkler type material” that she related to appearing like fireworks. This quickly transformed into a brilliant orange molten object that moved very slowly in a northern, then southern, direction. The woman stated the object appeared to be coming towards her. Frightened, she ran into her house. The entire episode lasted 15 minutes. [What Are Orange Light UFOs] (italics and bold mine.)

Peter Davenport’s NUFORC has a list of Oregon sightings, many of those are orbs.
