Location: Madison, CT
Shape: Sphere
Duration:45 minutes
Event 1) Glowing sphere tracing shoreline and crashed into the water. Event 2) Datona Beach FL. Flat hourglass shaped black craft off the top floor of a high rise hotel.

While sitting on the beach in Madison CT I saw what appeared to be a shooting start. 10 minutes later I saw trees in the distance being luminated. 10 minutes after that a sphere approx. 3 feet in diameter and glowing with an egg shell color. It slowly traced the shoreline over approx. 100 feet for several minutes. It then shot inland at a very high speed with little more than a slight whoosh. 15 minutes later it returned to the same spot. After several minutes of shoreline tracing it seemed to lose control, traced out a 5 point star pattern, each leg being about 50 feet in length and crashed into the water about 50 feet off the shoreline where it broke open. Inside was what appeared to be a fiber optic "looking" cable bunch about 4 or 5 inches in diameter. Wall thickness appeared to be 1/4 to 1/2 inch, smooth inside and out. It floated on the water for about 10 minutes still glowing. After 10 minutes it slowly dimmed and sank. In the summer 1981 in Datona Beach I saw an object shaped like a fat flat hour glass on a disk. It appeared black against the clouds and sat right outside the top floor of a high rise hotel. 10 or 15 seconds after I saw it, it made a made a very high speed assent into the clouds in a long lazy "S" shape. I would be interested in finding out if anyone else had seen either of these sightings. Thanks,((name deleted))
