Duration:~2 minutes
White light above highway, changed shape, then disappeared.

Was driving down Briley Parkway, from Madison to the West side of Nashville. The time I entered is an approximation, but it was daylight, not long before evening, and I was looking up at what seemed like a very bright star above the road in front of me. I started thinking it looked more like something lower, like a plane, but it was just one white light and seemed stationary.

While I was looking at it, it seemed to stretch or unfurl into a straight line. When that happened, it looked more like a metallic thing, and the light (which before was all I could see) seemed to all move to the top, above the it was either light reflecting off of it, or flame/exhaust shooting out of it.

Then, it looked like it just shrunk into itself and disappeared, or maybe flew away in the direction perfectly away from me, so that it looked like it just shrunk into nothing. Or maybe it just stopped reflecting light, it's hard to say.

I saw another report from the 5th in a nearby area that sounded similar, so I decided to report mine as well.
