I am the ASD for Missouri MUFON and was traveling with my husband on our way home from a trip to North Carolina. We were about 30 miles west of Knoxville on Hwy 40 in a lot of traffic, when I noticed a small plane cross in front of us headed north to south, and as I watched the plane I noticed another craft under it. This craft was apparently headed west to east, directly towards us and appeared to be moving very slowly. It was a bullet-shape, and silvery, metallic in color, with a wide round front end and coming to a point in back. The shape of it reminded me of a 1950's car part. There were no wings or tail, and no red or green lights or flashing strobe as would be expected with normal aircraft. I would guess that it was flying at between 1,000 - 2,000 ft. and it was very large, bigger than a golfball held at arm's length. I remarked about this to my husband, but he was driving and could not see the craft. There was a very large light on the front of the object, which was a circular shape with curved edges, and an indentation inside the circle, then a bulging center. The light was a soft, glowing blue/white color, with it being darker on the outside rim and lighter on the inside. It was so dull that I would not have noticed it had I not been looking at the small plane just prior to seeing this object. As we drove, I followed the object as it flew over head, almost directly, but slightly to the south of our position and continued on. I then lost sight of it due to traffic and lights. This has to be the strangest UFO I've ever seen or heard of, even though I do quite a few UFO investigations. There was no sound and we had no residual effects, except I wonder what it could have been.
