Several bright lights in a row over Knoxville, TN

Possible UFO sighting in Knoxville, TN It was seen approximately 22:45 on Tuesday November 28, 2006.

My wife and I were taking a walk in the World’s Fair Park in downtown Knoxville. I looked up and noticed several (about 8 or 10 all in a row) bluish-green lights, circular in shape and very bright, just over the clouds. I thought they were fireworks or a bomb at first but the lights never faded.

They were 1,000 to 2,000 feet high in a partly-cloudy sky.

I saw them for about 12 seconds.

The light in front was the largest. It appeared the size of a half-moon; the lights following behind it were just a bit smaller.

The lights were almost directly above us. They started in the west and were headed east to south-east at about 60-100 mph.

It was an amazing spectacle and very pretty.

After it had passed, I noticed one of the TN Air National Guard refueling planes following behind. I noticed the plane about 30 seconds after the UFO's.
