Characteristics: There were lights on the object
The Moon of Memphis looks simular to the white full moon in size and brightness but rises to be a star.

In my backyard at 10pm mid-november 1964, I looked up and saw the bright white full moon but it had uniform whiteness and still bright enough to cast a shadow.

I looked around and saw the orange real moon rising over my neighbor house in the east. I stared at the object the size of the full moon above me for several minutes while it hovered above me.

It started a rapid ascent in the sky looking like a small moon then a brilliant bright star and then dim star until it disappeared from view.

Later analysis suggest that the object was at twenty thousand feet and was about ten acres in size. I call the object the "Moon of Memphis" since I witness this object over the community of Frayser in Memphis, Tennessee. The backyard that I witness this event was ((deleted)) St.

I was a ((deleted--aviator)) in the USAF and an intellegence officer in the ((deleted--military)). This object had religious implication since it appeared in 1964 because A through Z connected with 1 through 26 is a code! which decodes the word Israel to sixty four.

I believe it appeared so we would be more kind to every animal and give anathesia to animals before killing them to show more reverent to them and God.

((NUFORC Note: We do not understand the allusion to Israel or anesthesia. Date may be approximate, although the witness does not indicate that fact. PD))
