Date of Sighting: April, 2000 (Exact Date Unknown)
Time of Sighting: 10:30 PM EDT
Date Sighting Reported: May 3, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 5 to 6 Seconds
Location of Sighting: Cumberland Gap, Tennessee (N Central TN Near Virginia and Kentucky Border)
Latitude: 36.52 Degrees North
Longitude: 83.7 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Two
Weather: Witness Stated That Skies Were Clear.

Description: The witnesses mailed their report. They stated that they had just returned from a trip and were unpacking luggage from their car. The husband first saw the object and immediately alerted his wife. They watched the object move over their house. They described the object as 50 feet in diameter and estimated the object to be about 150 to 300 feet above the ground. The object was moving slowly towards the trees and no sound was heard. The object was of lime green color with some grass color on it. The object also had a tail. No explosion was heard. The object disappeared behind some trees. Apparently the local media said that the object was a weather balloon.

Comments: Old sightings are difficult to investigate especially when the witnesses don't recall the exact date. Given the explanation by the witnesses I think that they sighted a meteor with a significant copper composition. (This would account for the green color.) The weather balloon explanation is ludicrous.
