National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 4/15/2016 23:00 (Entered as : 23:00)
Reported: 5/27/2016 10:27:59 PM 22:27
Posted: 6/1/2016
Location: Gallatin, TN
Shape: Light
Duration: 8 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Several lights move in erratic fashion across the sky, then converge to one ball of light then disappear.

One night my family and I were watching the international space station fly over. About ten minutes after it had passed, I looked up to see what looked like stars flying around in erratic directions. I pointed it out, and one by one, we all saw them.

It started out to be two, but then more came and they appeared to be almost chasing each other and playing around. It wasn't debris from the space station because of the erratic motions and speed, and it wasn't bugs because the star like lights would fly behind clouds and comeback out the other side.

We watched for several minutes as they chased, darted, fly across the sky then stop and fly the opposite directions. Towards the end of it there were almost two dozen but they all emerged into one light the size of the North Star and then fizzled out like smoke.

We called are local news channel to report it, but they pretty much called us nuts and told us to record it, but our video camera had been chewed up by our dog and the lights were too small to zoom in on.

I'm not a big UFO believer but I don't know what it was.

This is not a hoaxed report, I am just not sure if the date. I believe it was August of 2006 but I am not sure
