Tennessee witnesses had a good view of a white cigar-shaped UFO for a minute and-a-half beginning at 9:52 a.m. on January 8, 2011, that they note had no visible tail, wings, windows, or markings, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
While no city was mentioned in the public portion of the MUFON report, the driver and two children were traveling west on Union Avenue at Cooper Avenue when the "large, white, non-reflective, cigar shaped object" moved overhead.
"This object was a long cylinder-shaped (cigar) and rounded on both ends," the reporting witness stated. "It was white, but not reflecting the sun at all. It moved at a steady pace toward the south and slowly began ascending and turning slightly to the south west. We continued to watch this object, discussing it the entire time, looking for anything that could identify it (ie wings, tail, propeller, windows, colors or markings)."
No images or video were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on January 11, 2011.
