 Another Strange Report From Pine Mountain

We all know that the Pine Mountain range is home to numerous bigfoot sightings. But it is also home to a lot of other strange activities. Everything from ghosts to UFOs and even murders have plagued the mountain range. 

I recently got yet another interesting report from the area. Check it out and see what you think.

Describe sighting in detail: 

I don't know if this is considered crypto-related or not but it was the freakiest thing I've ever experienced. So I'm relating it. I sent a Bigfoot yell report before but you are the only site I've reported anything to.

I was in process of moving to Kingsport Tn and moved out of my apt and had everything moved except for what was loaded in my car. I couldn't take residence officially, until the next evening, so instead of driving down there and sleeping in car I decided to drive up on the top of Pine Mountain overlooking Whitesburg. I'm in my 40s now but remember my youth of 4wheeling and just in general being out and about..so I knew about the radio towers on Pine Mtn. I went there because I got good AM reception and was listening to a political program out of Cleveland Ohio just like the old days, where we could get clear Coast to Coast AM up there.  Anyway..I was not drinking or doing any drugs, I'll say that right off. I was sitting on the main top right next to the towers in my car facing Whitesburg.  Just looking at the night sky and listening to the program. Window was down..I was wide awake and I never heard anything but I noticed movement out of my peripheral vision on my left (driver side).

Totally dark there except for moonlight. What I saw was a small yellowish ball of light that was free floating not making a sound. I had turned my radio down and car wasn't running so was dead silent. It was to my left about 20 ft away in a small area of trees but the leaves had about all fallen there, so it was some tree trunks and limbs..but smaller trees. Nothing large to really cause any vision trouble. I could see into the trees for a good way.  It being the top of the mountain near the towers each direction lead to downhill. 

Nobody lives anywhere near on Pine Mtn either.. trying to rule out anybody saying it was a person.  This light was so close and the trees so bare, I could see this light was free floating and about 5 ft off the ground just moving thru the trees in a slow walk rate. 

It illuminated the trees and ground around it for approx 10 ft so, I could clearly..very clearly tell that there was no person..no drone..no nothing around this light. It wasn't a lightnin' bug because it was the wrong color and it stayed lit for 2 or more minutes before I got freaked out and left lol. 

I've thought and thought what normal answer could it have been but can't come up with an answer. I even went back to look to see if there where any pole lights that might have been on road etc and maybe I was seeing it thru the trees on road but no lights there. The road is below the horizon behind the trees so no car/ATV possibility etc. Its hard to describe, what I mean by the fact that it was so close, I could see that it was right there next to a tree and floating from one to the next and wasn't something way back and just looked close etc.  The way I described it to anybody is like if I was 15-20 ft from you on a dark night carrying a pen light and walking casually thru some bare trees but the person isn't there.  That's what I saw.  Like I said I creeped me out because it was dead silent and just "felt" weird.  Anyway I said f this and left. I hope I described it in such a way you understand what I tried to get across.  Thx

Thanks go to Chris for sharing his sighting with all of us. 

I was lucky enough to have been raised right near, the general area, of Pine Mountain. I have hunted, explored, hiked, and bigfooted in a lot of it. Pine Mountain is as beautiful as it is mysterious. 

If you have had a similar sighting or another odd encounter, then please send in the report.
