Brillant round craft that hoovered in the morning sky in Tennessee...

I was driving my 14 year old son to school, in Chestnut Hill Tennessee, we were on Old Newport Highway. I Was driving about 50MPH when I noticed a brillant, shiny, metallic object in the Eastern sky. I was stunned because I knew that it was not an airplane, nor was it a helicopter because it did not move. It Was hovering.

I told my son to look at it and he was as shocked as I was. It was about the height that a helicopter would fly, but it was definitely not a helicopter. It then shot up at an 11:00 o clock angle and was out of the atmosphere in a matter of micro-seconds. My mother was in the back seat of the car and leaned over the seat and saw it as well.

I work at a business in Gatlinburg, Tn. and am very conservative. I have a college education, and I have NEVER encountered anything like this before. I knew when I looked up at it what it was...it was an incredible experience..

Thank you
