National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 9/24/2003 21:00 (Entered as : 09/24/2003 21:00)
Reported: 9/24/2003 7:09:02 PM 19:09
Posted: 9/28/2003
Location: Cookeville, TN
Shape: Changing
Duration: Continuous
Characteristics: The object changed color
Object seemed to change shape while changing color. Could not resolve under 150X telescope. Unlikely it was a craft, but have not seen a celestial object emit this type of variable light and change shape. Was seen in the low western sky, and dipped below our horizon but not at the same rate as the earth's rotation.

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the witness might have been observing vivid twinkling star, which currently can be seen in the western sky during evening hours. PD))
