Duration:20 minutes
A bright orange color changing to reddish color disk/saucer was observed hovering above power transmission lines.

My father was a politician in the State of Connecticut for 28 years before his passing when I was 10 years old. Being a politician, he frequently hosted political functions at our home on the weekends. This particular night, I had fallen asleep on the backyard patio during the party my parents were hosting. After the party attendants had left (approx. 23:30 hrs.), my father had awakened me and was bringing me into the house when we both heard a very loud explosion or bang. Both myself and my father were standing in the front door of our home looking straight down our street at the power transmission lines that were in the woods at the end of the street. We stood there watching the disk shaped object hovering for approx. 20 minutes over the power transmission lines before the object suddenly took off at an extremely high rate of speed. Due to my father's position, nothing was ever said of the incident, and this is the very first time I have ever reported anything about it, even though I have very vivid recollections of the event.
