Duration: 10 minutes
No of observers: 2

Location: McMinnville, TN, USA

Shape: Light
Characteristics: Aircraft nearby

Red light viewed in sky in Bledsoe County State Forest on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee.

Watched red light that was not flashing in sky NE of my home. Light set still approximately for 3 to 4 minutes. A small airplane with flashing light flew behind it in an easterly direction.

Then the solid red light slowly moved in an easterly direction very slowly for approximately 2 minutes.

Then the red light went slowly straight upwards for approximately 1 minute. Then the red light moved slowly back in a westerly direction for approximately 2 minutes.

Then the light blinked 1 time & went out in the sky just like you had turned a light switch off.

When I say moved slowly no airplane could move the slow. It was like a crawl.

It was not a helicopter cause the light would have been flashing just like on an airplane.

Slate blue sky background.
