National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 1/22/2021 21:00 (Entered as : 01/22/2021 21:00)
Reported: 1/22/2021 8:27:23 PM 20:27
Posted: 3/2/2021
Location: Johnson City, TN
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 2-5minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Spotted a red sphere that appeared to be flying a little lower than typical passenger plane altitude. It looked like a bright red star. It did NOT flicker/flash. It was moving faster than your average plane, but not significantly faster. Was moving West NW. Appeared to bounce up and down a little, but could have been eye trick. No sound whatsoever. After observing it for about a minute, I went inside and asked my husband to check it out. He came outside and we watched it cross the sky for another minute or two. He also commented that a bright non-flickering red light on an aircraft was strange.
