On the 18th of June 2004 I had came off of I-26 north and was traveling along I-81 going north between the Tri city's Airport and Blountville exit at about 17:00 or 17:30 hours going towards Bristol, VA. We were Coming home from a long day at the water park and had my son and my nephew with me. The boy had just went to sleep after looking at the pictures we had taken that day. I have a Kodak, DC 3200 digital camera and had it in the front passenger seat. My radio started fading out from a local radio station that I listen to. I started trying to find another station when I noticed something shiny from the corner of my left eye. I looked to my left and noticed 3 silver balls that looked connected coming up the south bound side of the interstate going north and passing me. I looked for what seemed to be forever just in wonder when I realized that I had a camera. By the time I got it turned on it started across the 4 lane highway turnig towards the east and in the direction of the Airport. I started taking pictures while driving and tried to stop, but it went out of site before I could stop. I was traveling at about 75 MPH. when it passed me. I took 9 photos and when I got home I went and downloaded the pictures to see if and what I had taken pictures of. Out of the 9 photos I have one photo that shows the object.I have reported this sighting to Mr.Kim Shaffer Of Tennessee mufon and gave him the report.
