Posted: 3/9/2004
Location: Bristol, TN
Shape: Disk
Duration:15 minutes
Disc filmed in daytime sighting

At 17:30 hours my wife called me at home from approx. a mile from our home on a highway where she, my son and other people in cars were slowing down watching a disc shaped object over their heads, high in the sky. I live on a hill so i was able to see the object and viewed it through binoculars and then with a video camera. The object was lensatic in shape but too far away to make out any details except for shape and color. The object had an aspect ratio of about 6-1 and was highly reflective on one surface and flat black on the other, or so it appeared. I watched and filmed the object for about 5 minutes as it ascended at a 45 degree angle until it was out of sight.Video has been submitted to MUFON for analysis.
