Reports Report 126a (Event 126-2017)

Name Danica V
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks We were driving North on the 81 in Tennessee. It came from straight ahead, high in the sky appearing as a small blue light and got closer. It lit up the entire sky like daylight and was yellow and bright at the time then flew directly over us and behind. It was pretty large. A bit scary to see, honestly. I'm not sure if it hit any where.
