Location: Trumbull, CT
Shape: Disk
Duration:20 minutes
huge elongated dic with red/green flashing lights hovered over school field for over 20 minutes, appeared as though it might land.

On 4-30-08, at 9 p.m., I took my dog out for a brief walk, and as I turned the corner to re-enter the house, I noticed an enormous elongated disc with red and green flashing lights all over it hovering over the field directly next to my house. It did not make any discernible sound. I watched it for approx. 10 mins., then put the dog into the house, and phoned the police non-emerg. #, to ask if anyone had reported something strange over Trumbull high school athletic field. The officer who answered asked "Do you mean Madison School? Yes, people have reported seeing something over Madison." I said no, Trumbull High School. The officer then asked "Does it look like it's trying to land?" I said no, I had watched it for the past 10 minutes, and it was just hovering in place, making no sound. He said they had recv'd. a number of calls, and for me to tell him if it looked like it was going to land.

I phoned two neighbors, who went out and called me back, telling me that they saw it, too. I went back outside, and continued to watch it for another 10-12 minutes. It hovered in the same spot, mostly, then once it raised and lowered slightly, and once it turned to the side. After it turned to the side, it began to move toward the Agricultural Science school and the animal pasture outside the school, descending as it moved. It looked as though it might actually land over in that direction. I watched it reach treetop level, then I rushed back in to call the police again on the non-emerg. #, telling them that it looked like it might try to land. I went back outside, and it was gone completely, nowhere in sight.

I phoned the police the following morning to see if they had determined what it was, and the woman officer who answered the call said "No, but we filed an offical police report, based on what we saw." I asked her if the police had seen it, and she said yes. I spoke to a reporter from the local paper, who wrote an article about it, and he found out from the police that they had received a call earlier that night of 4-30-08 that an "Anonymous caller on 911 reports massive spacecraft landing." That caller was referring to Madison School, not Trumbull High School, which is where I saw it. The two schools are miles apart. The reporter confirmed that there were no outdoor activities at the schools that night, no science clubs flying kites or anything. When the reporter asked the police if they had seen it, they denied that they had. What I saw was as large as a house, and was only a few hundred ft. off the ground when it was hovering for over 20 minutes.
