Date of Event: approximately 1966
Location of Event: Knoxville, Tennessee
Message: My dad, who is an extremely no-nonsense guy, swears that he and his friends saw a UFO from the Ag Campus in Knoxville in about 1966. It was a dome shaped craft that made an electrical humming sound, had a metallic finish, and blue lights around the base. It hovered about 10 feet or so above the street, and crossed the river and went up over the bluff and took off.
It was apparently seen by many and there were reports in the newspaper. Authorities investigated and reported that it was a fraternity prank where students were building a fire under laundry bags and floating them up like hot air balloons. My dad says that is total BS.
Does anyone know anything about this? This comes from an incontrovertible source.

The last couple of days in December, 2007 I witnessed a light completly still above a gap in the mountain toward the southwest from my house it was about 30 degrees above the horizon. The light was red in the center and blue around the edges. The blue may have been rotating around the red ligh, but I’m not sure. The following evening my Son who lives near me asked me what type of craft was hovering over the gap that morning. He denies that thier could ever be a UFO, but this had him concerned. I had seen only a light, but he had seen a solid craft of some sort and it had been in the same place from 2:00 AM Until around 6:00 AM.
