Location: Smyrna, TN
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
Stationary light looked like a star or planet moved across the sky and turned into what looked like a cigar shaped craft

My daughter and me were leaving from Smyrna, TN heading toward Murfreesboro, TN on Murfreesboro Road (that part of the road changes names but it's all still Murfreesboro Road). It was around 8 pm June.24.2012 we were still in Smyrna and had just gotten off the ramp by the Nissan plant heading toward where Florence Rd crosses over. *I'm being specific for anyone else who witnessed this in the area.

We noticed a single bright light in the sky which we thought was a star or planet (I was sure of that) because it was just sitting there not moving at all and it looked like any other typical star/planet that you'd see on any given night. As I was driving (maybe 2 or 3 miles later) my daughter said it looks like it's moving, I said it could be us driving and it just looks that way. But then to me it did look like it was slightly moving.

All of the sudden it began to travel across the sky and downward, gaining speed. I said what the hell? Then I started thinking it was a meteor but I couldn't figure out why it was sitting in the sky like that? After it went from the left to right side of the road and was headed more downward I then pulled over (I was about a quarter mile past Florence Rd). The bright light went out and some smaller lights appeared around it and I could now see a long dark cigar shaped object. It slowed down almost barely moving to a complete stop for about 10 seconds and the lights were changing around the object (changing as in where they were located and from flashing to not flashing) all appeared to be small white lights and then took off again with great speed which I have never seen a plane do and went out of sight just that fast.

I have tried to think of what this was, but after cycling though rational explanations I am left with none.

Someone had to of seen this besides us.

This object when the bright light went out was very large, we couldn't see the object before that because the light was very bright. I didn't see any wings and there was no sound.

Again I'd like to point out: 1. It was stationary and looked like a star/planet nothing unusual about it.

2. It then moved very fast across and downward falling like a meteor would.

3. The bright light went out and we could see a long dark object with no wings or sound and smaller lights appeared around it. It looked like a mist/veil type glow was around it. Maybe a thin cloud? 4. It hovered, traveled very fast,moved slow and came to a complete stop (things which a plane,star,planet,meteor does NOT do! At least I have never seen anything have movements or abilites like this.
