The Advocate newspaper(Stamford)front page news:"UFOs in Stamford?"(Sun.Oct.10th,1999)A half dozen witnesses saw circular shaped object over Long Island Sound on Oct.3rd,between 3:30 to 4:00PM""boom rocked Stamford"Police were called no apparent cause.

The Stamford's Advocate newspaper (Sun.Oct.10th)edition reported in its front page about an unexplained boom that "rocked"the city of Stamford the previous weekend, that might have been connected to reported sightings of a "circular shaped" UFO over the coast of Wesport(CT) earlier that day". The boom "rattled" some windows,around certain neighborhoods in the city of Stamford. Also, residents of close by cities: Darien,Norwalk,and Danbury, reported "flashing lights in the sky before the boom". Frank Fedeli,a supervisor of Stamford Citizens Services Center,said:"it sounded like blasting,like the noise of an excavating machine"..."the windows rattle,like a boom,and it was gone". The Stamford police received many calls,but they,and firemen,did not find anything odd. City officials guessed "it might have been a small earthquake,or sonic boom from aircraft". However, airports and the National Earthquake Information did not detected anything unusual.
