Location: Memphis, TN
Shape: Sphere
Duration:20 seconds
An orange sphere was seen moving quickly across the sky over Memphis.

I was walking my dogs behind my house, as I do every night, and noticed an orange sphere moving very quickly across the sky in the south-southwest direction. It appeared to be very high in the sky. It did not have any of the characteristics of the aircraft that Memphis sees in its skies coming and going to MEMH.

Firstly, it did not have flashing lights. When the planes are headed directly towards your line of sight, you cannot see flashing lights, but they tend to appear yellowish-white; this craft was a solid, orange ball.

Secondly, it was going way too fast relative to its apparent altitude. Had it been a plane at that altitude, it would have been moving much slower across the sky.

Thirdly, when it finally dawned on me that what I was looking at might actually be a UFO, and I reached into my pocket to take out my phone, it instantly disappeared; as if you had just flipped a switch. It was completely gone. Since there were no clouds in the sky during this observation, it couldn’t have gone behind a cloud. The entire observation lasted only 10-12 seconds.

For years I have made a minor hobby out of watching the FedEx planes coming and going in the Memphis skies, and I am completely certain that what I saw tonight, March 21, 2019, was not a plane or a helicopter.
