MUFON Tn. confirmation of sighting

Confirming that MUFON Tennessee recieved 6 witness reports of a descending object which exibited peculiar charateristics. These reportees were within a 50 mile radius.

Descriptions are almost identical of a slowly descending object which was relatively N.E. of this area:(36.5950°N, 82.1890°W) and began at a high elevation. Relative size, according to witness(es) descriptions was that of a golf ball initially.The object meandered slowly as it descended, became a bright "plasma-like" light twice during it's descent and exibited the appearance of burning paper before being described as "melting and dripping plastic" by witnesses. All witnesses described that the phenomenon had not terminated before descending below their horizon.

Subsequent inquiries have not confirmed our suspicion of this having been a meteorite or man-made space debris. KS
