Sighting Details

On Saturday January 21, 2017 at 8 p.M., i was watching TV in my living room in the dark. i was sitting on a chaise lounge chair with a westerly window with lace curtains in front of me. i noticed an abnormally bright light that i thought was a star. two seconds later it hit me. we cannot see stars here in tn on a cloudy night. i live in the country. there are no city lights, not even street lights. it was a black night, except for this object. i got up, grabbed my binoculars and went to the window. the “star”, appeared totally different in the binoculars. it was sort of hexagonal shaped, and had the most beautiful red, blue, yellow and white lights. they appeared as a pattern on the side of it. the colors would pulse and flash. i was in shock and yet mesmerized. the object was not moving. i ran to get my husband from the other room, to make sure that i was seeing what i thought i was seeing. he came out and witnessed it too. by this time it was getting smaller, and he left the room. i continued to watch. seconds later it was just suddenly there again. i got out my camera and started snapping pictures. then i shot a short video. the camera captured 3 balls of light in a triangle shape that was not visible to the naked eye. the video caught strange lights moving erratically, unlike anything i had ever witnessed in my life.
