Sighting Report
Occurred : 7/31/2011 21:00 (Entered as : 7/31/11 09:00)
Reported: 7/31/2011 6:46:14 PM 18:46
Posted: 8/7/2011
Location: Milford, CT
Shape: Oval
Duration:10-15 seconds
Bright orange, silent orb, moving steadily but not real fast across the sky

At approx 9:00 PM, 7/31/1, my husband and I were sitting at our patio, which faces the LI Sound in a southerly direction.

We suddenly noticed a movement in the sky and looked up to see a large oblong to oval shaped object that was very orange (no trailing image like a comet) and bright moving silently in a NW direction; we think; it looked like it was moving towards West Haven.

It looked fairly high in the sky, but not nearly as high as a jet or some of the smaller planes that we have seen fly over.

We are often in our backyard at all hours and have never seen anything like this before.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with the husband, and he sounded quite eloquent and objective in the description of the object. We suspect that both he and his wife are very good, and credible, witnesses. PD))
