UFO (Real bright light) over Lake Beseck in Middlefield, Ct

I live out by Lake Beseck in Middlefield, Ct This past Saturday (10/08/16) in the early evening i came out of my home to bring some firewood inside since the nights have started to get chilly.

While i was walking over to the woodpile i noticed a bright white light over the mountain in the area where the Mountain Side Resort is from a WSW direction. At that time i didn't pay any mind to it cuz i just thought it was a aircraft or maybe the planet Venus. Venus can get real bright at times and could fool someone too. So after bringing a load of wood in i went back out to get some smaller starter wood with my bucket and i noticed again that this light had gotten closer and now was over the southern area of the lake. This was no planet.

At that point i stopped to take a good look at it but i couldn't tell if it had stopped or was continuing to come in my direction. This thing was bright and it looked like there was a smaller but just as bright light just under the main light.

To find out if it was moving still, i a lined myself (my eyes) with a telephone cable that hanged from a street light across from my property in such a way to see if it would appear from behind the cable. Sure enough it came from behind the cable so that told me it was moving but not fast at all.

Keeping my eye on this thing, i went into my car to get a pair of field glasses (maybe 10x25) not too powerful but enough to see it through the lens. All i could see was these lights that were too bright (blob), no markings or anything, couldn't make out a shape to it at all, it was just too bright. No sound at all, no vapor trail, just floating along in a ENE direction, at a angle that would have put it right over my home.

As I'm looking at it coming closer, all of a sudden it just disappeares!!, like someone just hit a switch and turned the lights off. There was no clouds anywhere in the sky. The moon was up but it was futher to the south. The sky at the time was i guess what u would call in twilight. The stars were just starting to appear, dark but not real dark. Not sure of the time but it was around 1845-1900 hrs.

I've seen other things in the sky at night, ISS, meteours, shooting stars etc, but nothing like this object or anything this bright. I suppose it could have been a drone that someone was flying but at night??, no sound from any props, and the distance this thing traveled from, with one hell of a big light or two. I don't think so. It just disappeared. I looked further to the ENE direction to see if it reappeared but nothing. I continued to scan the rest of the sky in all directions but still nothing more.

One min it was there and the next min it just disappeared, gone!! I'm beside myself cuz i've never seen anything close to what this was.

Weird, real strange, WOW!
