Location: Knoxville, TN
Shape: Cylinder
Duration: 5 minutes
metallic cylinder hovering above city.

A coworker and myself were driving west on cumberland ave. and i noticed over to the northwest approximately 1 to 1.5 miles away at about i guess 1000 or 1500 feet i saw a cylinder hovering in the sky standing on end motionless. I observed this intermittantly as we slowly moved with the traffic down cumberland. It was a hazy or overcast day is the only reason we noticed it because it appeared to be a gray matallic color and stood out against the background of the sky. I estimate its size at approx. 3 feet thick and about 12 feet in length. I am writing this 4 years later and i cannot remember exact date. Size and distance are my best guess only.
