Shape: Sphere
Duration:10 minutes
Orange floating/hovering sphere witnessed by four people.

While sitting outdoors on July 5, 2010 at approximately 9:00pm, myself and three others noticed an orange, floating sphere. Initially, we pondered whether it could be a paper lantern as the day prior was the Fourth of July, so we thought people could be celebrating still. We watched it, mesmerized, as it didn’t appear to change altitude over the course of several minutes. It simply floated from the southeastern sky to the north-northwest. As soon as I voiced that if it were a paper lantern it would have changed altitude by now, the hovering sphere stopped completely. Suddenly, it went into (what I would call) warp-speed and darted north northwest, disappearing several miles away. One friend, a native of Clarksville, stated that it flew right toward Fort Campbell’s air field. My other friend, an infantryman, stated he had never seen anything like that, and that to his knowledge the military has no aircraft resembling that. My other friend sat in disbelief. Th! is was several years ago, but every July 5th, I remember this event like it was yesterday. I decided to document this event, in case anyone else might have seen it as well.
