Never seen one quite like this here.
The color pattern is more orange.

I think that's an oak moth

I've seen a few up here, but never bothered to try and find out what they are. As long as they don't bite me I don't pay anything a lot of attention.
I wish my brain could forget what my eyes have seen.

This is a Cecropia moth I think.. particularly large specimen (6" across wings?)
