Further Description of Sighting: Mom was driving and we were coming back from Murfreesboro heading west on Burnt Knob Road. I live with her at 6636 Burnt Knob Road. We were almost home when I saw through her driver’s side window to my left (south) a bright white round light quickly falling at a slight arc past my viewpoint over the horizon or down to the ground.
The object looked a lot like if somebody had shot up a flare but not as fiery looking as that and then if that flare fell down to the ground and out of sight. I’ve checked the news and there have been no plane crashes reported in that area. Also the meteor shower calendar doesn’t show anything scheduled for today.
The object fell quite quickly and there were trees blocking my view so I didn’t see it for very long. I was more concerned that it was a plane crashing but apparently (so far tonight) that is not the case, as far as I know.
