Location: Clarksville, IN
Shape: Fireball
Duration:20 min
Fireball floating in a circle patteren also making figure"8"s slowly then speeding up out of sight

There was a fireworks show going on in our city, which is one of the nations largest as it is a Pre-Derby event called "Thunder over Louisville" anyhow we were watching it on TV this year and i walked out to have a cigarette as we don't smoke in our home.

So i am having my smoke and i look up directly above me and i see what appears to be a glowing ember floating in the sky above, so while i am watching i realise it seems to be something else, i also realise at the same time it cant be an ember because it is not only moving to fast, but it is making a figure"8" patteren and looks to be like something watching the fireworks. So i go get my son who is 10, because we both like to watch the sky at night, and i show him what i see and he sees it, and we stood there watching it for about 15 min, it also besides making a figure"8" it seem to be circling around making controlled movements. This is the first time he has seen what i would describe as a "UFO" we have seen lights that to me are too fast for a satellite while living in Oregon but never made these type of movements, they would just be hooking across the sky in a strait line, but this was the best sighting "I" have ever had..Anyhow it speeds off twords Louisville as soon as the fireworks stopped and it stops and starts making the same movements over the city, well then it speeds off again and we watch till it fades out of sight..
