Cylindrical metallic object falling to earth

On Thursday night, January 12, 2017, as I was traveling south on highway 134, just about 5 miles outside of Troy, NC, I noticed a metallic cigar shape object falling straight down out of the sky.

It was a clear night with a full moon, so I could see the object clearly.

I drove past the object before it either hit the ground or whether it leveled out and flew away.

I called a friend who I call a sky watcher, and sure enough, she had spotted a bright burst of light, which then faded quickly over the city of Sofia.

Don’t know if the two events are related or not.
