strange flash of something shiny over Rutherford County, TN.

Ununsual flash of something shiny like metal in the sky far away to the north or possibly the northernmost-north-east(?). It was partly cloudy because it had rained earlier. A few dogs began to bark at about the same time, although I doubt that this had anything to do with whatever flashed because the object was apparently so far away. At that moment there were no airplanes in sight nor hearing. As for my, well, "qualifications" as an "observer," I lived only hundreds of feet from Nashville International Airport for about eleven years, after which I have since lived near another airport.
