On august 26th at about 8:20pm i was driving from cornersville tn to lewisburg tn to get some takeout. approximately two miles from the bypass into lewisburg i came around a corner to find several cars stopped in the middle of the road. thinking it was an accident i just stopped and started to wait. i noticed that several people were standing outside their cars looking up. i got out of my car to see what they were looking at and saw the object in the sky. it was a very bright object with an orange hue. it was at least 3 to 4 miles away from us and looked to be about the size of golf ball at that distance. i would have guessed it to be about 30 to 40 feet across close up. the object was not moving and i heard no sound from it's direction. we all stood out there watching it for about 15 minutes. the object moved very quickly to one side, made several quick flashes and then made a very rapid assent, so fast that it looked like a light streak going strait up and then disappearing. one of the other people on site said he had been watching it for almost half an hour.
