Location: Sevierville, TN
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 14 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Saw an object with a huge tail of fire traveling West to East at a very high rate of speed.

At approximately 6:55 am, April 4, 2019, I was traveling south on Rt 66, coming from I-40 exit 407 in Sevierville, TN, going to work in Pigeon Forge, TN. To my right, I saw an object traveling at an extremely high rate of speed (50 times faster than any jet in the sky) traveling from my right to my left, West to east. It looked as if something had entered the earth's atmosphere and was burning. However, I did not have any depth benchmark and couldn't tell how high it was. It actually looked like it was going to land at the Sevierville airport. The object quickly disappeared to my left. It did not loose altitude. The rate of speed made me feel the object was close. I could not distinguish a shape but whatever it was, it was diminished by the large tail of fire behind it.
