Another "Hockey Stick" Sky Orb

Photo date: February 6, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo at left (taken on a dry night with no fog, mist rain or precipitation) shows a sky orb I photographed with a stripe resembling a hockey stick. The photo on the right shows another "hockey stick" orb I photographed in 2016, as noted in this post.

I have added this pattern to my table below listing recurring patterns in mysterious orbs (most of the examples referred to below can be conveniently seen in this post).
