|Fast moving light over clarksville Tn
Around 4 am Sunday morning my friends and I were hanging out at my apartment when the power went out. We then decided to go outside and use the brief period of lower light pollution to observe the stars.
After being outside for about 3 minutes one of my friends saw a shooting star. Directly after he saw the shooting star he ushered us to look in that direction and when we did the three of us saw a light moving south-southwest away from Fort Cambell army base.
Only seconds after we saw the light we noticed a plane moving in the direction that the light disappeared on the horizon. The light was very bright, way brighter than any star out that night.
And it appeared to move in a curving motion at one point before returning to a straight path and moving very very fast across the sky.
We only saw it for about 45 seconds.
