Tennessee witnesses in Anderson County report watching a silent, “black rectangular” object hovering near the tree line “with one large light at what appeared to be the front of the craft and 6-8 smaller lights toward the back,” according to April 11, 2012, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witnesses were outside looking at Jupiter when the object came into view.
“It moved really, really slow, and sometimes appeared to be swaying,” the reporting witness stated. “The lights blinked, pulsed and changed colors- red, yellow, white and green. It looked to be about the size of several football fields in length.”
The object seemed to be descending as it moved away.
“As time passed, the craft seemed to slowly descend, dropping further and further behind the tree line until it was no longer visible. We were completely blown away, and slightly nervous.”
