Me and my cousin and his girlfriend went camping near Cherokee Lake in MoTOWN, TN. We were near the side of the lake way up where some trees were and where we set our tent and campfire up. My uncle stayed there for a while. Me, my uncle, my cousin, and his girlfriend were sitting there at the camp the first night we stayed. It was a clear sky and stars covered the sky and it was a full moon. We looked up at the sky after my cousin was telling us about "how we never know what's up there. The galaxy is infinite" and things like that that me and him was always talking about. We looked up and looked at the stars and we saw a flying ball of bright yellow light soaring slowly through the sky. I saw it first, then my cousin pointed it out. It moved slowly across the sky. It appeared not to be a "shooting star" because it was moving so slow for a long time. It finally reached a point where it seemed to have disappeared into the atmosphere and a bright orange light appeared. My mouth was opened the whole time and I never realized it. I never saw anything like that before. We saw a jet near the object before it disappeared. The UFO never flashed a light. The jet did. It was spectacular.
