Location: Nashville, TN
Shape: Light
Duration:~2 minutes
Bright orange light in the sky, appeared to be two separate lights when zoomed in. Both shaped in straight lines.

One object seen near two cell towers, no movement. Recorded a video of the object, and when zoomed in, it seemed as if there were two lights with a small gap between them, but farther away it looked like just one light. Lights were a very bright orange, similar to a street lamp, but shaped like straight lines.

After one minute of no changes, object began to shrink and turn white, and then faded out after approximately 2 minutes of observation. Moments after the object faded out of sight, I heard several loud popping noises in quick succession from the direction the object was located, unable to determine if the noises are related or unrelated. Unknown how long it had been there before I saw it.

Object was sighted near an Air Force base and an airport. I am the only direct observer that I am aware of, but I did record a video of the entire event as it happened. I returned to the spot the next morning to take a picture of the area during the day to verify that there was nothing between me and the object I recorded, as well as no signs or lights that could account for the object's appearance.
