Date of Sighting: August 9 – 12, 2018
Time of Sighting: 11 PM to 2 AM EDT
Description: On 8/9/2018 I was outside after midnight letting my dogs do their business when I noticed a light in the sky unusually BRIGHT. I have never seen a star that bright before. It appeared to be stationary. I watched it awhile. It seemed to flicker with Blue and Red colors, but with the naked eye it was hard to tell. It was there for several hours at least 3 hours. Then as it got closer to morning about 5 AM I noticed it was GONE. There were still other stars visible so it wasn’t clouds. I did think that ODD. I would have thought nothing of the Bright Light until it disappeared. On the following night 8/10/2018 again I noticed the Bright LIGHT around the same area. Later I looked again and it was GONE. 8/11/2018 I was again out BEFORE Midnight when there was that same BRIGHT LIGHT in a different part of the SKY. I called out to my husband we both watched it for approximately an hour. We had an old pair of binoculars unable to tell much about the light. We could see the Blue and Red lights surrounding it and it seemed to be shape shifting, but stationary. We went back in after a while and later could tell it had moved a little in the sky, but was still visible. About an hour or so later it was Gone. 8/12/2018 after MIDNIGHT I was outside and there it was again in a completely different area of he sky again. I tried to get my husband and son up, but they wouldn’t get out of bed. I got a GOOD PAIR of binoculars and sit outside watching for about 20 minutes. I could see the RED and BLUE lights – CONSTANT shape shifting – ROUND DISC – Then STACKED like 3 tiers with the colors – then it went sideways like a LINE completely WHITE in that shape. I watched as it kept changing shapes. Then I heard noises in the field so I was looking up at the sky and then switching to the field to see if there was something out there. I was Back and Forth for 10 minutes. Then one of my dogs barked SPOOKING me, made me jump and scream LOUD. Then I again focused on the LIGHT in the sky at which point it now looked completely different. It looked like a GLOWING MASS of Smoke of Gas like it was Breaking up. Going from that BRIGHT GLOWING LIGHT to a GLOWING Mass of smoke that was scattered and started getting dimmer as it scattered. Then it appeared there was a hole forming in the center of the MASS. I removed the binoculars to look with the naked eye. Upon doing that I could no longer see anything. It was gone and I could no longer see it with the binoculars. It was almost as if I scared it away when I screamed. This was all a little after midnight. I checked several times that night for the return of the light at which I never again located it. I definitely KNOW it is something unusual. It was not something like a planet, star or satellite. It is something else. I live in EAST Tennessee “Vonore”. An Area in which there is often unexplained sightings in the sky. MY home was in the DIRECT LINE of the Eclipse Last YEAR – Lots of people descended on our little town for 2 minutes of TOTAL ECLIPSE Darkness. The Field Across the street from my home was filled with thousands of tourist who came to view the event. We are in an active area. We have had CROP circles and other strange events over the years. I can’t wait until tonight to see if the LIGHT RETURNS. Its usually around 11 PM – 2 AM it seems. I will keep you posted.
