Location: Colchester, VT
|Summary : Saw bright green light, about 11:45 pass over head going to northeast. No sound but radio was out for about ten to fifteen seconds. We where in parking lot of the Country Market, near old Fort Ethan Allen, Colchester. Object was big and very fast. Left no smoke trail.
Stange black thing with green glow: very high and fast coming out of southwest over White Face Mtn., and New York side of Lake Champlain. Last seen passing to Northeast. We where standing in parking lot just out side of the Flag Store on Essex, side of Road. My younger son, 19 and in college was remarking to other kids to look at what was coming. He thinks it was strange because it was changing speed and jumping all over the place. We had two Japanese students with us and they also say it was strange. We had radio and car running and both acted up for about ten seconds: radio went dead and car stalled.
