Date Sighting Reported: July 6, 2008
Duration of Sighting: One Minute
Location of Sighting: Brentwood, Tennessee (Suburb of Nashville)
Latitude: 36.02 Degrees North
Longitude: 86.78 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Two
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: Two
Weather: Thunderstorms Were in the Area. Several Lightning Strikes Were Observed

Description: Listen to Audio of Witness Interview (MP3)
The witnesses called a day after the sighting. They stated that they were outside and saw a triangular shaped object ascend from behind the trees to the south of them. The object was silent and had several white lights around it (the brightest were at the apexes of the triangle). The object moved to the north and was lost when it moved behind obstructions. The next day the witnesses visited the area (see map) where they thought that object had ascended from. They found scorch marks in a triangular (boomerang pattern) on the ground. A check with the property owner revealed that no burning had been conducted at the location. The witnesses attempted to take photos of the alleged landing site, but the photos did not clearly show scorch marks.

Comments: This sighting could be a hoax, but that is doubtful. Normally witnesses constructing a hoax provide false contact information. One witness was interviewed over the phone, but the other witness was present and was responding to some of my questions. The witnesses were each 19 years old and sounded sincere. The scorch marks on the ground could be due to lightning strikes as the witnesses reported extensive lightning on the night of the sighting. Of course the scorch marks could indeed be due to the landing (or takeoff) of the object.
