Over the last few days I have been talking to Derek about his sighting of a UFO. I think I have gotten
most of the major details now and wanted to share the report.
Here is the report in Derek's own words.
"In the winter of 05 or 06, I'm not really sure which, I had a sighting of something and I honestly don't know what. My wife worked nights and me days. We only had one car, so I would take her to work and pick her up. One night about 10 or 10:30 as I was about to leave, I was standing on the back porch having a smoke, we don't smoke in the house, and from left to right at about 30 or 40 feet up in the air and about 100 feet away a dark red or black flying object going slowly flew by.
It wasn't a living thing but it wasn't a air plane either. It made no sound, had no light, no nothing. The size of the thing was maybe five feet long and ten wide maybe less.
The sighting was at my home in Morristown, TN. It was very cold that night, probably in the teens or twenties. I stepped out to smoke on my back porch there is a small park with a half court basketball court and a small softball field. There are street lights on the street that runs parallel to the park and they shine toward the park, so the small tree line that separates my yard from the park is silhouetted.
Out of corner of my eye I caught a glimpse of something flying I looked over and up and saw whatever it was. The thing resembled a predator drone. It was flying very slowly. It made no sound or no lights of any kind.
I watched it until it went out of sight. As I said it was about ten at night and cold as crap, no one was flying a model or nothing at that time of night. I remember feeling weird like what is this thing but it didn't do anything.
Thank you, Derek"
Here is an overview of the details
Sighting date: Winter of 2005 or 2006
Description: Dark red or black in color. No sound or lights. Moving very slowly. Approximately 5 foot long by 10 foot wide.
Now, the question is ...just what was it? We may never know.
Thanks to Derek for sharing his sighting with us and corresponding back and forth with me.
