Duration:20 minutes
I was getting ready to go to bed at approximately 11:00 p.m. and noticed a bright white light in the sky surrounded by a fiery colored lights around it. It was too bright to be a star and that is one reason I continued to watch it. It was still and then began to move to the ground. It stayed on the ground approximately 5-10 minutes and then moved back up in the sky at the same location it was before. It slowly starting moving horizontal toward the west until it dissapeared. I have three other witnesses besides myself. We live in a very secluded area on a large farm hundreds of acres between all neighbor's property. Our dog, along with many others were barking for a very long time while it was in the area. I did not notice any sound the object might have made. It is also noteworthy to state that I live very close in proximaty to government property- Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The object three times the size of the largest planet, had a rainbow of colors around it in a jagged shaped around it.
