Multiple UFO sightings continue with a Smyrna, TN, report of more than 27 fast moving “star-like objects” crossing the sky, according to August 30, 2011, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
“They changed direction, hovered and would disappear,” the witness stated. “There was no sound.”
We recently reported on accounts from across the country where multiple UFOs have been reported: Hurricane Irene weekend: Spike in multiple UFO sightings
“We saw 27 plus – so many we lost count.”
One other report from Tennessee also recounts multiple star-like objects in MUFON Case # 31323. Five people observed multiple objects on August 27, 2011.
“We saw three shooting stars in about 10 minutes time,”the reporting witness stated. “Then within 30 minutes, we saw about 7 to 8 shooting stars (maybe more) as I lost count because it was really something to see. I began to question – was this normal? Next we witnessed a star moving. The light looked different from a regular star. It’s hard to explain because I have never seen a light source like it. Possibly similar to the cars with the blueish halogen lights. If you take away the blue hue it was something like that – very vivid, very clear – unlike any light I have ever seen.”
Smyrna is a town in Rutherford County,TN, population 25,569. No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on August 30, 2011.

The following is the unedited and as yet uninvestigated report filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If Tennessee MUFON State Director Eddie Middleton investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.
TN, August 29, 2011 – 27+ moving Star like objects. MUFON Case # 31326.

This was in Smyrna,TN. Bent Tree subdivision. Including myself there was 4 witnesses. Ages 20 to 60. We also seen a couple of regular planes go over but they were at plane height well below the star objects.
I am working on getting a good high quality camera that will film these,this has been going on for awhile but last night there were more than I had ever seen!
