Further Description of Sighting: It appeared overhead looking like a full moon, bright enough to create a moon shadow and as bright as a regular white full moon. I noticed the real moon a rising orange moon in the eastern sky. After a few minutes the UFO above me called the Moon of Memphis started a rapid ascent. The Moon of Memphis got smaller and smaller until it looked like a bright star, then dim star, then a point of light and disappeared in space. It reminded me of the Star of Bethleham at high altitude. There was no noise but it was an amazing UFO.
