Hi, I was wondering if the year of this sighting might be off a few years because I saw a UFO on September 1976 that sounds very similar. I know the exact date because we were coming back from the 3rd. "Mohamed Ali - Ken Norton Fight" that was shown at the Municipal Auditorium that night in Nashville, TN.

We were about two miles outside of Brentwood, TN going south on Hwy 41 toward Franklin, TN when we saw this GIANT cigar shaped object the size of a football field slowly make its way across a clear, purple sky. We pulled over and watched it for several minutes when suddenly two fighter jets zoomed toward it causing at least three stories of colored lights to light up! Then it vanished!

If I remember right it had been reported the next day in the newspaper, The Nashville Tennessean.

I reported it in a letter to J. Allen Hynek, with CUFOS. But I have not been able to find anything about my sighting listed anywhere, though someone did say they saw my letter in one of Hynek's book of which I have yet to locate.

I have been searching the Internet for years trying to find anyone else that might have seen the object we saw on this date and this listing on your site is the closest I have found.

Thanks so much,
