Duration:10 minutes
round, 3 orange lights in front, silent, slow,

Thursday, August 6, 2009 at 9:10 p.m. over Bristol, Connecticut 06010, USA, my wife and I heard a loud bang outside and my wife asked me to investigate what caused the noise. I went outside and saw that there was nobody around. I quickly noticed 3 bright orange lights about 1,000 ft up coming out of the north-west sky heading south-east, slower than an incoming aircraft about to land (we live in the flight path of Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn.) The lights were set up in a triangular pattern on the front.

I banged on the house to get my wife’s attention and she quickly came outside to join me and asked me what the problem was, and I asked her to look up and tell me what it was that I was looking at. She saw immediately what I was looking at and asked me what it was. I said, you tell me” and she said, "I don’t know."

She kept staring at it and soon she said, "Oh, my god, it’s round." I agreed with her and we continued watching the UFO as it glided silently over us heading south-east. It was as large as a 747 aircraft but round and made no noise whatsoever.

We watched for 10 minutes as it passed directly over us and as it passed, it was obvious that the lights were only in the front of the craft, no lights underneath or in the back, and no blinking lights either. Just after it passed over us, the lights began to disappear from sight similar to a car passing you on the road.

My wife and I sincerely believe that we witnessed a UFO and are only disappointed that no-one else saw it from our neighborhood and that we were unable to get its attention in hopes that it would land near us.
