Staples Avon, CT UFO ID Software DooM Engine Open Source

When I was younger working at Hopmeadow Mall in Simsbury CT, I heard about a UFO sighting in Staples Avon CT location. This was around 1999 when I heard of it. I believe it occurred years earlier around 1995, though it may have been as early as 1990. I had a friend who worked at Staples around 1998 who never told me of this event, though this person moved away shortly after working there.

This may be of interest – this Staples used to be a popular location to buy computer games, especially the old ID Software Doom engine games. This was before the engine went open source. I cannot explain this connection and I doubt the person telling the account of this sighting knew this store used to be a popular location to buy ID Software product. I don’t believe they have a large aisle selling games anymore.

I believe this Staples used to have a steeple on the roof as well.
