NameLauren T
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWe were driving in the car.. i was in the passenger seat. . The longitude and latitude are as close as i can guess to where we were at that point.. it was roughly right before 8pm in millington tennessee.. i tried to figure out which direction we were going the road is called singleton parkway (204) headed south towards egypt central.. so i believe trying to look at a map we were pointing southwest.. it came from over us from the drivers side out in front of us towards the passenger side in the distance.. example..(so if we had a beam of light and we were facing north it came over our left shoulder southwest at a diagonal towards the right and ended northeast i believe) maybe yall can look it up and pinpoint the exact directions it came from above and on the driver side and when it ended it was on my side of the window in the forward angle distance if i make any sense at all.. then it was gone.. it had a long tail all of it was super bright my friend thought it was a firework it was so cool.. bright as the sun lasted alot longer than a shooting star but was still over super quick.. definitely not a firework... and the shooting stars i see normally are small specks... this was a big ball like a big marble if i held one up maybe bigger... because it was so many hours ago its hard to remember colors but i know it was super white and bright and maybe some green or yellow.. long tail but it all disappeared and we had the radio on so didnt notice any sounds amd we were so stunned its hard to remember everything sorry
