Location: Columbia, TN
Shape: Light
Duration:15 seconds
I was walking my dog, with the nearly full moon over head, and very few clouds in the night sky. A silent light, which I first thought was nothing more than an airplane, was transiting the night sky from south to north. It was a small, yellow-white light, and was not spectacular in any way.

When it was almost directly overhead, it stopped. It did not move up, down, or from side to side. It was completely and absolutely stationary. It was stationary for about five seconds and then suddenly, it flew due west at an extremely high rate of speed. If it was an aircraft, the inertial forces would have made it impossible for human pilots to withstand the g-forces of such acceleration.

I walked back inside and my two year old daughter, who is learning to talk, was telling everyone "Hush, hush, they're singing." She did this for several minutes.

My background: I am an ordained minister, former pastor, and an adjunct professor at a private university in Nashville.
