Location: Memphis, TN
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
One light, brighter than any star moved slowly across the sky and vanished. 30 seconds later a light sped across over my treeline.

I stepped outside upon returning to my home near the University of Memphis, lit a cigarette, and looked into the sky, a habit of mine since I have always been interested in astronomy. The sky was clear, dark, and surprisingly, for a Friday night. I could see an unusual amount of stars.

But one light, which appeared to be a star was moving across the sky slowly, but fast enough to recognize it was indeed moving. I stared at it, looked around, walked onto the street to get a better view, and looked up again. It was still hovering, at a fairly consistent speed headed southeast from my vantage point.

I pulled out my phone to take a video, but I could not get enough exposure so i put it up. Then all of the sudden, like the flick of a light switch, it was gone. I looked all over the sky for another sign, but failed to.

So i called my friend who I was texting to tell him about what I believed was a ufo, and as I was talking to him, another light, with the s! ame brightness and size sped across the sky, almost as fast as a meteor that reaches the atmosphere.

It appeared in the center of the night sky and flew south over my treeline in a matter of a half a second.

I'm not sure if that second sight was the same object as the first, but they were two distinct sightings approximately 30 seconds apart from each other.
