Tennessee witness reports red light moving around property

A Tennessee witness near Highway 33 at Knoxville is curious what the large, meandering red light was moving near her home about 10:20 p.m. on June 17, 2014, according to testimony in Case 57119 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was swimming in her backyard when she first noticed the light as she looked across her backyard.

“I saw a red light, approximately 15-20 feet in diameter,” the witness stated. “It was moving very slowly behind the tree line. There was absolutely no sound and it was too dark outside to see anything but the light.”

The light seemed to disappear and reappear.

“It disappeared behind my house, and reappeared just beyond our property line, changed direction, and crossed the street to the right. And continued slowly, moving between a cemetery and the next street over.”

The witness continued to watch the light.

“It reappeared one more time, and had again changed direction and moved across Highway 33 out of my sight.”

    The survey cant of course be an accurate indicator of UFO activity as you have seasonal variations, more people out in summer than during winter, people who never make reports out of fear etc.
