After watching a unusual "star" disappear,I jacklighted the positon,got a reflection,It reacted,another cylinder appeared.

I was watching a "star"? west of st. hwy. 45 near Northside H.S.Madisdon cty. Tn.I had noticed the star,planet, whatever,3 or 4 weeks earlier.

It would appear low,say 10 or 15 degrees above the horizon,10 minutes or so before dusk, it moved s. to n. each night,it would descend slowly,and disappear from sight in 10...15,minutes. On this night however it didn't descend,it seem to go out.I started shining a 2-million candlepower spotlight at the last positon I saw it at.

I got a reflection, I then signaled it by turning the light off/on several times.

After doing this a few times a cylinder shaped object,w/blinking red,green lights appeared in a vertical positon spinning on its on axis. Then an orange colored object cylinder shape,vertical positoned moved in from a n. to s. direction. It seemed to be between my position and the first object. It was in a tilted positon,say 5,or 10 degrees. I was quite startled by these events,I turned the spotlight off and went inside.I did not look outside any more that night.

I am a 46 year old male.I am an Industrial,New construction Electrician by trade.I had not been drinking or whatever these nights or this one in particular.
