Location: Spring Hill, TN
Shape: Light
Duration:1-2 seconds
I saw a very bright orangish colored light traveling very fast over Spring Hill.

I was standing on my front porch on 8-14-06 watching some lightning flash off in the distance. When all of a sudden I saw a bright white/orangish light that appeared to be coming from a north westerly direction at a high rate of speed.In the blink of an eye it vanished.I initally thought it was ball lightning due to the lightning storm that was taking place farther north of my location.My thought at the time was "cool" I just saw my first ball lightning.

Tonight on 8-16-06 at about 8:49pm I was again standing on my front porch smoking and just happened to look up and saw the same light! It was very bright and white/orangish looking. This time however it was almost straight overhead and again appeared to be traveling very fast and was visible for about 2 seconds when it blinked out. I've seen many things in the night sky including airplanes, satellites,ISS, meteorites, fireballs and comets but this light looked different and did not appear to resemble any of those things.

*I am wondering if anyone else in the Spring Hill,Tn area has seen anything like this?
