UFO group says 100 Tennesseans saw unexplained sights

Seeing strange lights and weird objects flying in the sky, nearly a hundred Tennesseans have made such claims over the last few years and the number of UFO sightings in the state is growing.

According to the Appalachian UFO research center, about a hundred people in Tennessee reported seeing UFO's between 2004 and the winter of 2005.

Some of those sighting were right here in the Mid-South.

Tony Pratt describes his first encounter back in 1986.

"It was about 11:30, we stepped outside and saw a big triangle outside a Baptist church," said Tony Pratt.

Pratt uses his video camera to document UFO's. He claims if you point the camera toward the sun, then block out the sun itself, you can see something flying in the sky.
