Experience Level3/5
Remarksmy granddaughter and I were in my car driving toward dawson springs,ky. on the western ky parkway from Madisonville,ky ..dark clear night, out of the windshield, we both saw a very bright white light suddenly appear out of no where, then trailed down immediately,turned a blueish color and then a red tail appeared on it, then suddenly disappeared behind the tree line.. freaked us out, at first, we were afraid something had crashed, but no light or fire on the ground anywhere as we approached dawson to get off the parkway... very exciting that both of us saw it, but unnerving at the same time because it was so unexpected!
