Location: Beacon Falls/Naugatuck, CT
Shape: Light
Duration:5min.
lights moving very slow with no noise approx. 300 yards away

While traveling south on Rt.8 I noticed lights off to my right that seemed to be going in the opposite direction,which I thought was a plane only I was traveling at about 60mph and a plane would have to have been going 120mph the opposite way.We should have passed each other pretty quickly only it seemed not to be moving.I pulled over,got out and watched the "lights" (in no perticular shape)travel north towards Hunter Mountain traveling very slow without any noise whatsoever that I could here.I was thinking "Hang Glider" but it was dark outside and it didn't have any form of headlights and the mountain was in the way.Now when I say mountain I mean it would take only about 5 minutes to drive from bottom to top.Then it just sort of faded behind the trees no noise no crash!It wasn't to long after that that there were sightings in New York State.The news program had people saying hang gliders.The sightings in new york as I remember wern't far from Connecticut but I can't remember exactly where.Somebody in new york had a video of a UFO which was shown on the news and that looked exactly like the one I had seen meaning the "lights".I just got my computer and found this site otherwise I would have reported this long ago.If I had to guess on how far away the object was I would have to guess 300 to 400 yards away in relation to the way it dissapeared into the trees.
