Location: Bristol, TN
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
Brilliant white light over Bristol, TN traveling at super speed, then cutting a 45 degree angle then phasing out of sight.

My wife, my three children and myself had gone to a double feature drive-in movie in Bristol, TN back in 1999. We were laying on blankets just outside of the vehicle and the kids had just fallen off to sleep shortly after the first film ended. During the second film I was looking up into the night sky and noticed just how beautiful the stars were in the moonless, cloudless sky. After a couple of minutes I noticed a brilliant white light moving horizontically through the night sky at what seemed to be at a super fast speed (Note: it was not a falling star - I've seen a million of those and they move at a much slower pace and tend to be falling down in the sky this object moved sideways). The light traveled in a perfectly straight line over 90% of the entire body of the night sky. I had my wife observe it as well. We watched it move to the corner of the sky at which time it made a perfect 45 degree angled turn upward (not like a falling star) into the sky (I've never seen anything cut an angle like that). Then in just two seconds, the moving object proceeded to go into some kind of hyper-speed and it looked like a stepping stone in the sky and then it gradually faded out forming a blurry intermittent line and then vanished. I thought it was the coolest thing I had ever seen. My wife refuses to talk about it to this very day.
