canard wing craft

I saw the largest canard wing craft I have ever seen traveleing ESE. in East Ridge Tn.

The canard appeared to be at least 60ft in span, traveling quietly. Several other cars stopped to see it go over as I did. It wasn't alien but I believe it may be secret.

After spending 2 hours searching the net for a similar craft I can't find one. It was white and may have had wing tips on the main wings. Biggest Canard I have ever seen.

Chattanooga Airport said they didn't know what it was.

((NUFORC Note: We do not know if the sighting occurred at 3:30 a.m., or p.m.. We assume it was an afternoon sighting, and we have amended the indicated time accordingly. The shape of the object reported brings to mind the "LearStar" aircraft, which has a canard wing. However, it is a turboprop driven aircraft, which therefore should have been audible. PD))
