The man, whose name was withheld, said he was driving on Louetta when he and his son saw "a fireball in the sky with a tail."
At one point, the pair lost sight of the object, only to regain contact a short time later.
The witness said the object was moving "very slow the first time we saw it," only to speed up as it got closer to the horizon.
There is still no explanation as to what the object was.
