Posted: 9/9/2004
Location: Dale Hollow Lake, TN
Shape: Unknown
Duration:30seconds
High altitude, fast moving object swept across entire horizon less than 30sec with a pulsing "contrail".

The reported time is approxamate Central Daylight time. The object was spotted first by the other witness on our boat in Dale Hollow Lake. It appeared to be very high in the atmosphere and moved across the visible horizon in less than 30seconds, possibly less than 15seconds.

The object itself was not visible. It looked a little like a meteor entering the atmoshere. The "contrail" was a elongated tear-drop shape. Yellow/white in color and less than 1/2" long if the length was messured at arm's length. The "contrail" pulsed on and off in a very periodic fashion. Three pulses with a pause and then three more pulses. It completed about 4/5 cycles of 3 pulses in the time it took to disappear over the horizon. The direction of travel was South to North.

Note: we saw a shooting star and several satilites over 2 nights of star gazing. This object did not resemble any of these sightings. The sky was very clear and aircraft often crossed at high altitude directly overhead on a West to East heading and this object also did not resemble a civilian aircraft in speed(UFO was far too fast), altitude(UFO was higher), or apearance.
