Location: Knoxville, TN
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Orange flickering light in sky

We were leaving Brixx on Kingston Pike when I spotted an orange flickering light traveling horizontally in the sky toward Papermill. I tried to watch it as long as I could, but keeping up with two children and a boyfriend that dismissed it as a "lantern: kind of drew my attention away.

It was definitely something you donít see every day, and I would really like to know if it can be explained.

I was just complaining the other day that all these "non-believers" see objects all the time, and Iíve never seen anything.

Iíll just consider it a complimentary viewing after my request I suppose.
