Location: Johnson City, TN
Shape: Circle
Duration:20 minutes
Five lights seen moving over Johnson City, looking like bright red-orange fire before vanishing.

My girlfriend and I came outside at roughly 9:30 to smoke a cigarette. After a few minutes we saw what looked like a circle of red-orange fire move across the sky. It appeared to move slightly faster than the life-flight helicopters that we see occasionally see as we live near the local hospital. As we watched it, the object began moving erratically and suddenly became dark but still visible against the clouds.

Shortly thereafter, another fast-moving ball with the same coloration appeared and followed roughly the same path before vanishing.

We decided to wait and see if any more objects flew by. Sure enough another two balls of red-orange appeared behind the tree line, moving slightly slower than the first, before turning at almost a 90° angle and vanishing.

Our neighbor from across the street was out walking his dogs at the time and had stopped at the corner of our road, having seen the second set of lights. His dogs barked as the lights before they faded from view.

Before continuing over to say his hellos a final ball appeared, rising significantly higher than the previous lights, turning slightly and then vanishing.
