Connecticut sighting - blunt triangle shaped craft cruises over dense suburban neighborhood at night.

I was coming home from work and had just pulled into my driveway. I exited the vehicle and glanced over the top of my house to the north...I always do this when I come home from work. I do not know why. I live in a pretty dense neighborhood (my lot is .18 of an acre), but being a weeknight it was quiet..no dogs barking, no people out so pretty typical.

I live in the flight path of two airports, one that houses mostly business jets as well as recreational aircraft; the other regional jets to international flyers. I also am subject to the hospital emergency helicopter, aka LifeStar, from time to time and also grew up in the flight path of a military base and get buzzed by the Met Life blimp once a year due to a PGA Golf Tournament that is run a few towns over, so I am pretty familiar with what I should and should NOT be hearing above my head.

Like I said, I exited the vehicle and glanced above my house to the north. My routine. I was stopped short because I heard something that didn't sound right. It was a low steady frequency with absolutely ZERO movement to it. It did not sound mechanical. I focused my eyes to where it was coming from. Then up and above my house and over the tops of the trees this massive vessel/craft/ship appeared, strong and steady.

It was a long, blunt triangle shape. Think of a triangle with the tip cut off. On each of the 4 points there was a steady bright white light I took to be the indicator lights. Between the back 2 white indicator lights, there was a big bright red light that blinked, not fast..slow and steady. On the blunt tip between those 2 indicator lights there was what seemed like a wall of lights that only shone straight ahead...like headlights per say. This ship was either very low or very big.

As it passed overhead heading in a southerly direction, I just stood there, quite literally frozen to the spot, mesmerized by what I was seeing. I had my iPhone in my hand but I didn't want to take my eyes off it even for a second so I could be present and remember what I saw so I could keep every detail in my head. As it passed,it was all I saw, all I heard and nothing else mattered. I was not scared.. I was more, interested and curious.

After I got my senses back, I went inside and drew a picture so I wouldn't forget what I saw in the morning.
