Location: Shelbyville, TN
Shape: Oval
Duration: 19 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
strange moving oval craft running from other aircraft with a very erratic behavior at night..........

in the night sky aproximately 19:37-18:00 hours i witnessed one craft traveling in the upward sky at 1 oclock to two oclock degree angle moving southernly to northern path ,and the craft or object stopped and changed direction to its southern track again in an instant. i followed it with my cell phone camera which is a very good camera for a phone,and i'm not sure if i got it or not or whether it can be magnified by the reporting firm to show more,i'm hoping that can be done. the object stopped ,and i could not find it i waited several minutes and i saw aircraft with blinking blue white red strobing lights suddenly fill the area in many directions i tried to take footage of that also. i saw it, the object again moving very slow from eastern to north western direction,and there was no change in the light sort of bright but not overly bright it had a strange look like haze or glare around it that did not distort the shape....very odd to me, and it would mo! ve erraticly sort of darting from left to right or mabey curving and sometimes almost jumping around ,not stable at all. as i stated i saw other aircraft start flooding the area i counted i think 9 and the object making ten total,but i feel its very odd we are close to arnold airforce base in tullahoma tennessee. the other aircraft were also at a high altitudes because i could not hear any noise from any of them at all .i was able to film it ,but i dont know how good it is for proof? the object i feel was about the size aproximately 20 meters in size to be that visible at a clear night.maybe it was several miles up if not more the other craft could be military....unsure but i have seen theis type of objects in the night sky before and some move very fast; others are erratic in speed or very slow and or not moving at first the color they are is different than normal stars.very strange. its this kind of activity in the night sky that keeps you actively searching for unk! nown objects in the sky i am describing. i did the best i coul! d to be as accurate as possible to describe direction behavior of the craft an incident as i could. not conventional aircraft,however the others were not moving as it was they were chasing it. and not very close to it. it looked to me like the other aircraft were trying to box it in as it was moving away from them........
