Further Description of Sighting: I was at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum with my parents for a conferance. Every one was inside the coliseum, and I was out in the walk way which was all glass by myself.

I was looking out, and I saw the craft come slowly down the side and stopped right in front of me. I noticed lights going round and round the outer edge of the craft.

The colors were ble, red, green, and yellow if I remember correctly. The only thing between me and the craft was the glass.

It hovered there for a few minutes as I stood there stunned, then it wisked quickly away straight out from the building and disappeared.


  1. It was 1973, and I saw the same thing. We had moved to Knoxville that year, into an old mansion on Washington St. I have never forgot that night, waking up looking out my second story window and seeing the exact same thing. I woke up my brother who could’nt understand me, who then woke up my parents. They thought I was talking about a tornado, because I said it was round and spinning, We had moved from Indiana where there were lots of tornados, logical thinking maybe. I was just nine @ the time, guess thats why it stuck with me. I also remember that there were some write ups in the local newspaper around that time about various sightings.


  2. I don’t remember the exact year but, I was visiting my grandmother (who live on Magnolia Ave) around the same time and was walking down the sidewalk, during the day, by myself. I sat on a neighbor’s stoop and looked up to see a huge, silver object hovering just above the telephone pole in the sky. Don’t remember what happened after that and, frankly, was astounded to see that someone else had seen something around that time and place. Also, I was about 9 or 10 at the time.
