Trucker observes Star-like object near Lake Center, Ms.

While driving a tractor-trailer rig from Tupelo, Ms. to Fayetteville, Arkansas, I observed a pear or tear-shaped star-like object, just off Hwy. 78, near Lake Center, Ms. It was just above tree level and appeared to be about the size of one-fourth of a dime at arms length. At first, it was yellowish in appearance, like a star, then faded to red, then to blue, before disappearing. Obviously, it was traveling paralell to the highway, as I kept it sight for 3-4 minutes, before it faded.

((NUFORC Note: We received a telephoned report about this sighting. We have no idea what the witnesses observed. PD))
