Sighting replicated two nights in a row in West Nashville.

Profile of sighting(s): Sighting 1- 11.09.14 2200 At approximately 11pm I was out on a run here in west Nashville. My approximate location was at the highway 100 highway 70 split.

Upon looking down at the city scape, I noticed a light that seemed to cut the sky in half the way a spot light would if it were pointed directly up into the night sky. The stream of light was faint due to the saturation of light coming off of the city and the almost full moon. To give you an idea of my vantage point- the at&t building is facing my direction with this stream of light appearing to disect the building in half vertically.

I looked at this stream for perhaps a minute or so as I tried to discern if it was light coming off of another building (such as a hospital) and as I was doing so a globe appeared directly over the at&t building itself - or so it seemed. The light was circular or globe like in shape and it emitted a red and orange pulsating light. The light I saw was akin to tossing red and orange glow in the dark balls into a circular tumbler and then revolving the tumbler in a fashion similar to the way a drying machine might tumble clothing around. The light I saw had an extremely unusual characteristic to it. The light appeared to strobe, yet it was faint enough that I didn't get the impression I was on the dance floor or having a laser pointed at me. The light lasted approximately 2 minutes and was 4-5 times the size of the at&t logo itself.

After a couple of minutes the intensity of the light decreased -as did the frequency of strobes. The light then moved in a south/east path over the city and out towards Memphis if you were headed on I 40. The velocity was"slow" yet constant (similar to that of an airplane cruising at altitude) with no apparent change in trajectory or pitch. The light continued to move horizontally across my field of vision until it went behind a tree line and into the night. No jet stream or sound observed.

Sighting 2 - 11.10.14 2200 In an effort to gather some additional information about the sighting - I decided to head out at the same time and be at the same place as I originally saw the object. I didn't think that I would be able to replicate my experience, but fortunately I was able to gather some extremely important observational data that may help in identifying what it is I originally saw. Again at 2200 the night after my initial sighting I saw this object but this time it was different. At this point the object flew into my line of sight as if it came from Memphis into Nashville. The object exhibited the same behavior as the object I saw last night during it's exiting phase. I saw it fly in a constant velocity and altitude as it did the night before. This time however - the object stopped in mid air just outside the city and hung there for approximately 30 seconds. Then it proceeded to head out the way it came without any sign that the object actually turned around mid flight. Essentially it w! as like the object was attached to a tether (like that of a yo-yo approaching the ground- appearing to stop for a second- and then going right back towards it's initial point of entry into my vantage point) The entire sighting lasted approximately 6 minutes. 2 min entry. 1 min "stationary." 2min departure towards initial point of entry.

This is the third time that I have witnessed this object - earlier in the summer I saw the same thing as my inititial report above but I didn't record it on my phone. I have footage from the Nov. 9 sighting but unfortunately I gave up my personal information in the video.

Que the X-files track!
