All should check expired NOTAMS on FAA website. NOTAMs usually explain alot of these things and predict when they will happen.. Military activity was conducted over the 310 radial of BNA VORTAC last night from 0200Z-0300Z (9pm-10pm). Most likely a flare drop. Looks like a triangle but probably just a heavy flare at lower altitude. Runway 2L,2C,2R were in use to divert traffic to the south for approach even though wind was @ 240 (better to use rwy 20 for less crosswind component) . Depth perception in night sky is very tough with bright objects. Flares slowly burn out and would explain the perception of altitude gain (getting smaller looks like its going higher) and "fade-out"
