I was sitting outside the kitchen of the Cookeville Rescue Mission. At the time I was in charge of the kitchen; at approx. 7pm, looking up toward the west I noticed three star like objects in the sky. I say star like because they were too low in the sky to be stars. I saw them again later that week but there were 7. I got out of my position walked toward the street in order to the west and saw 5 more. I tried taking a picture with my cell phone but was unable to see them on the cell phone screen, which I found extremely odd.I then went to bed. I was not alarmed or frightened as I know that extraterrestrials exist and have for far longer than recorded history reveals.
