strange lights over washington county tennessee

while observing the night sky i witnessed a light appear in the sky, which was moving in a trajectory that would be best described as a crash in the distance. the light was a bright white with a barely visible orange trail, about half the radius of the light. a moment later i spoke with a freind and informed him of what i saw. he and another freind came over and surely enough they both saw the same thing in a different part of the sky at about 9 pm. i did not witness the second event but the description was similar. then there was a tremendous amount of aircraft activity above us. we counted 35-40 planes in a period less than 1 hour. they seemed to be doing military maneuvers. the aircraft were dominantly heading to the locations where we had seen the lights. suddenly a flash of green light streaked across the sky directly above one of the aircraft. later another, more faint flash happened in front of another aircraft.
