Posted: 11/9/2004
Location: Asheville/Johnson City (between, I-26), TN
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 5sec
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
cigar shaped object moving from west to east extremely fast.

I was taking pictures at a scenic view on the new I-26 between Asheville, NC and Johnson City, TN. I took a picture of an overlook and felt I had moved the camera as I took the picture, seconds later I took another picture in relatively the same direction. Once I downloaded the pictures I found an object in the second picture that was not in the first. The position of the people and the clouds show the time between the two shots, at the most 5 seconds. This was taken faceing a southward direction in the late morning.

I did not see this while I was taking the picture, only after I was showing the pictures of the fall colors to a friend.
