Description (In Witness's Own Words): On October 3, 2007 at approximately 11:32 P.M. in Crossville, Tennessee our power went out at our Peavine Road home. My son and his girlfriend observed a large green soundless circular orb in the sky that moved slowly over the city then faded away. A friend of theirs across town called and reported seeing the same phenomenon that also coincided with a power outage at his location. The power was out about 45 seconds. There was some chatter today on local radio about this sighting. This is no hoax. Although some logical explanation may exist, my son can think of none that match his current scope of knowledge. He is 22 years of age and he and I are both skeptical yet fascinated by the possibility of “visitors.” He informed me that this was the “real deal” and an incredible sighting of a very large craft. If you are interested in his first hand account or can provide us with an explanation, I’ll put you in touch with him. I have yet to get details from him yet because he was headed to work and pressed for time.He nor I seek any fortune or fame nor attention but are willing to help an investigation, in the interest of an explanation. Unfortunately, I can only attest to the power outage, but you can bet I’ll be running like heck outside if the power flickers tonight. I am sure there are many that could provide details and I simply wanted to let you know, in case you wanted to talk to eyewitnesses in our city.

Investigator's Notes: This is another potential electromagnetic/electrical interference case whereby anomalous lights/objects interfere with electrical power. The report was received "second hand" from the primary witness's father. However, the father did experience the power outage at his home. Apparently several witnesses saw the orb and at least three homes experienced a coincidental power outage. The power outage was brief and was during the time period that the orb was sighted. It is not known if the power outage was due to the appearance of the "green orb," but given that the time coincided it is definitely a "suspect." No thunderstorms were in the area at the time and it is quite unlikely that the green orb was "ball lightning."
