I was sitting on my front porch and noticed a bright light in the distance over the trees. I mentioned it to my fiance and he said it was an airplane. I said it couldn't be an airplane because I had been watching it for a few minutes and a plane would have been over us by then. As we watched, the light got brighter and, when the craft got close, we knew it was a UFO. The craft was only about 100 feet over our heads. We called three more family members outside at this point for them to witness what we were seeing. The craft was HUGE, black and triangular shaped with some lights on the bottom. The craft made a very low, faint humming noise. We watched it go over our house. As it passed overhead, some helicopters and small planes were following it. Five of us witnessed this sighting. We didn't discuss this until some years later, when we thought how strange it was that, on a warm Sunday evening, on our usually busy street, we were the only ones out to see this amazing thing. We wonder now if we were maybe "taken" and the memories were erased from our minds. Since then, my son has had sightings where we now live in West Virginia. After our Connecticut sighting there was no mention in the newspapers or TV news of this craft having been seen. It was as if the craft was there for us to see and only us. This sighting occured at about the same time as the sightings in New York state. We are still profoundly affected by this experience.
