Location: Dyersburg, TN
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 hours

In Dyersburg, Tn (located in NW Tennessee) in 1978 I was outside with a flashlight star gazing when I saw a really bright light in the distance. Just as a lark I decided to point my flashlight at the object and went round and round -- really fast. The light started changing -- different colors and really bright. I was amazed!.

An airplane flew really close to the object, passed it, and when it was way ahead, the light darted at the plane. This happened twice.

Well I kept watching playing with my flash light and the light started moving my way. It came closer until it was above my head. The object was shaped like a triangle, with a light on each corner. It made no noise -- none.

It scared me so bad I ran to the neighbors house and pretended I was just visiting. I didn't tell them what I had seen because I was afraid they would think I was crazy. When I came out after about 15 minutes I saw the object moving slowly toward the south west.
