A friend and I had gone out to dinner in Chattanooga with her parents. Her older brother was to be meeting us at Outback with his girlfriend to celebrate my friend having been released for one of what we though to be her final two week breaks before she was to be cleared for being in remission for the cancer she had been suffering with for the last year.

We all gathered and had a wonderful time at dinner, and when we decided to leave we had to sit much longer than expected because the battery in my friends parents’ van had died. Her brother helped jump start the battery and her dad was to take the brother and his girlfriend home for some reason I can’t remember.

Well, this left myself, my friend, and her deaf mother to go together back to our home in a different city (about thirty minutes away), since my friend was to be spending the night with me that night.

Finally we got on the road and about ten to twelve minutes after we got on the freeway Amy and I saw an odd light out of the corner of our eyes and both looked up to see what it was.

We both saw what looked to be an oval-shaped ring of various colors (pink, green, blue, orange, yellow, purple, and white) that was titled at an angle and seemed to be spinning counter-clockwise. It was dormant in the sky, staying in one place and not moving. Suddenly it began, very slowly, to move in a ‘cross’ pattern (up, down, up, left, right, down). We weren’t the only one who noticed because we saw people sticking pointed fingers from their cars and honking their horns.

Finally, it seemed to just lower behind the mountains we were headed towards and disappeared.
