Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Reddish oval lights in eastern Tennessee.

Sighting: While walking my dogs, around 9:30 p.m., I observed 2 separate red light objects in the westerly sky traveling from West to East about a minute apart. The were 1 to 1 1/2 miles away initially traveling toward me. They were moving slowly without any noise. At first I thought it must be a plane but there were no flashing lights or noise.

The objects appeared a few hundred feet in the sky and appeared to be as if on fire (red). It was different than a Chinese lantern, for I have seen them. They had a red glow about them and much larger than lantern.

It appeared to be a small craft of sorts.

After observing them travel about a 1/2 mile they each made a 90 degree turn to the North. They were under the cloud cover & clearly visible. After turning North, they seem to simply fade away, but still being under the cloud cover.

I turned the block and saw my 2 neighbors in front of their house looking in the same direction. They asked if I had seen the object as they described the same objects. They said 2 similar objects had come over in same direction a few minutes earlier. These earlier objects did not make a turn as I had seen, but continued in a straight line over their house before fading away or vanishing. They said the could see an outline of a larger dark object than the reddish light as it passed over before disappearing.

As we were talking another reddish object appear coming from the same direction which we all 3 observed. It faded away without turning before it came much closer. Only observed this last object 15-20 seconds.
