Bean Station, Tennessee, USA; August 13, 2018

Name: Mark Tinsley

Date of Sighting: 8/13/18

Location of Sighting: Veterans overlook Bean Station,Tn

Number of UFO(s), including the Color(s), Size(s) and Shape(s): It look to be 1 UFO with 2 lights yellow-ish lights could only see the lights which were brighter than any star but the shape that connected them would have been a cylinder

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: Much closer than any air plan or helicopter if I was guessing I would say 400-600 feet

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): Once appeared Moved of to the north slightly northeast. At moderate speed but not very fast.

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): I had watched planes and helicopters pass earlier in the night which were much further away and very tiny in comparison

Further Description of Sighting: Was at over look got there at 12:30-1:00am and had been watching Perseid meteor showers in bed of my truck until around 2:45am when I spotted the object there was another car that had pull up and been there for 30 minutes. they had their music playing the whole time and had just started the car and turned headlights on then I saw the UFO which appeared out of the center of the sky with one really bright light closer to me and a dimmer one further.

the dimmer light seemed to be front because it was moving in that direction as it got further away it seemed that the brighter light dimmed to the same brightness as the front light. after I watched it move away for a second I noticed the other car in parking lot was not running there headlights were now off and had no radio playing this really freaked me out so hoped in my truck as fast as I could and left.

I couldn’t tell if there was anyone in the car as I glanced over while getting in my truck. If I wasn’t so spooked I would have stuck around and approached the car. I don’t think I go star gazing by myself again for awhile.

Gallatin, Tennessee, USA; September 10, 2019

Date of Event: 9-20-19 / 10-12-19

Location of Event: Hermitage & Gallatin Tennessee

Message: I am an avid night watcher. I have noticed an increase in activity in the Night sky around my area. On 10-9-19 around 11pm I noticed what I thought to be a satellite coming from the south heading north which I thought was weird because satellites don’t travel pole to pole, as it got closer overhead it got very bright brighter than Jupiter in the night sky, it wasn’t moving very fast slower than a satellite would be moving.

It dims to the brightness of a satellite and then gets brighter than Jupiter it does this several times as it got towards Polaris it got very dim so much that I could barely see it. Then it made a U-turn headed southwesterly got real bright and then dimmed out slowly. On the 9-10-19 I saw six of these objects.

On the 11th I saw 4 all heading north within minutes of each other . Not all of them got real bright they mostly stayed dim on two occasions I saw them flying in pairs about five minutes apart From each citing all heading in the same direction just a couple of degrees to the right of Polaris. Has anyone else in this area seen increased activity in the past year?

I have just about every night there is clear skies I sky watch and I see something weird In the skies That I can’t explain. I know they’re not airplanes I have binoculars and low power that I can’t explain. I know they’re not airplanes I have binoculars and low power kids telescope. When I look they don’t have red, green lights or strobes. So what are they!!??!!

Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA; September 26, 2020

Name: Barry Jernigan

Date of Sighting: 26 Sep 2020

Location of Sighting: South of Burnt Knob Road near Green Hills Baptist Church, Rutherford County, TN

Number of UFO(s), including the Color(s), Size(s) and Shape(s): One, bright round white light, a little smaller than an oncoming headlight from my viewpoint.

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: Hard to say maybe somewhere halfway between Burnt Knob Road and I-840.

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): Down to the ground at a slight arc

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): None

Further Description of Sighting: Mom was driving and we were coming back from Murfreesboro heading west on Burnt Knob Road. I live with her at 6636 Burnt Knob Road. We were almost home when I saw through her driver’s side window to my left (south) a bright white round light quickly falling at a slight arc past my viewpoint over the horizon or down to the ground.

The object looked a lot like if somebody had shot up a flare but not as fiery looking as that and then if that flare fell down to the ground and out of sight. I’ve checked the news and there have been no plane crashes reported in that area. Also the meteor shower calendar doesn’t show anything scheduled for today.

The object fell quite quickly and there were trees blocking my view so I didn’t see it for very long. I was more concerned that it was a plane crashing but apparently (so far tonight) that is not the case, as far as I know.

Memphis, Tennessee, USA; November 16, 2019

Name: Shannon

Date of Event: 11/16/19

Location of Event: Memphis

Message: While laying in a dark field watching for meteors, on 11/16/19 about 1130 pm. We noticed stars that were brighter than normal and they were moving around hovering in circles. AT first i saw 3, but then the entire sky was full of them.

I counted over 50. They were too far up to tell what shape they were. They were in 4 different formations. 1 triangle formation, 2 straight line formations and then there were sporadic ones flying in small circles. We watched them hover for 2 hours and they were still there when we left.

I have video footage and it appears in the video that they had like a bright orangish lights.

Memphis, Tennessee, USA; January 13, 1995

Name: Gary Miller

Date of Event: January 13, 1995

Location of Event: I-40 just east of Memphis

Message: My wife and I were driving from Memphis to Nashville just after midnight on January 13, 1995. We saw 4 very light objects in the northeast sky – 3 small and one large. They just stayed in one place.

I pulled into a gas station to fill up the rental car and asked the store clerk if there was an AFB near that area. I told them what I saw and they just laughed. To this day, my wife and I swear these either had to be UFO’s or some sort of military experimental craft. They were NOT helicopters.
