Location: Knoxville, TN
Shape: Circle
Duration: 5-10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Me and my sister saw a strange light rise up from the horizon, move like I have never seen any aircraft move, all while making no noise

Me and my sister were walking our dogs around 9-10 o’clock at night when we saw some sort of circular light rise up incredibly fast from the horizon. It looked like a circular white light with a smaller red light towards the top of it. It seemed to have a slight disc shape, but due to distance and my glasses lenses, it was hard to tell if it was a glare from my glasses or simply a blur from the distance. It made no noise. it stopped in place for a few moments before beginning to accelerate incredibly quickly and make super smooth and quick turns.

It was hard to tell the speed of the object, since it was so far away, but it did go significantly faster than any aircraft I have ever seen before and it was silent. It continued in that pattern, occasionally stopping in place. Eventually, it disappeared behind some trees and emerged a few minutes later, but this time it was blinking like a plane would, but it continued the irregular movements from before. It disappeared again behind the same trees and then soon emerged again, now it wasn’t blinking but was a solid light like before, but we saw it change to start to blink again.

It then drifted back down to the same general area it initially rose up from, and me nor my sister saw it again.
