Occurred : 7/17/1997 23:40 (Entered as : 07/17/97 23.40)
Reported: 8/5/1999 08:55
Posted: 8/10/1999
Location: Hartford (near; Highway 91), CT
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 5 min. app.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Slow moving triangle shaped craft with big white lights and a red pulsating light in the center flew about 300 feet over my car.

My girlfriend and I were driving back north to Canada on Interstate 91, at about 11:40 PM halfway between Hartford CT and Springfield MA when we observed a cluster of lights thiking it was a plane or helicopter due to the fact that Bradley Airport was 4 miles west of us but as it got closer the weird configuration of lights mind boggled us but it was heading westward and lost sight of it, then another one appeared on the east heading right toward us, as it got closer we knew this was no conventional craft, it slowly flew over our heads at about 300 feet soundless with 7 big white lights in a V formation (the lights did not light the ground) and 3 small flickering lights on the tip of the triangle which would be the front end and a small pulsating red light dead center of the craft, the craft itself was very dark (could not make out the actual body) it was also heading westward following the first. We stopped and watched it disappear in the horizon. The question we have to ask our selves is what would we gain or loose if the government finally told the public about the now famous Roswell crash, the alien abductions and the ongoing ufo activity. Logically speaking, if this craft would be government made, wouldn't it be most top secret (area 51), and if it was, what was it doing flying between large cities, woudn't these test be dangerous for the general public, if they were safe wouldn't we profit from it by improving today's latest planes and if they were from another country, wouldn't the army have intercepted this illigal alien threatening our country. The most logical answer would be that somekind of being is flying far more technologically advanced craft of anything we have on earth. Obviously we can't catch one or catch up to it, they abduct people and we haven't the slight idea how to stop them, if they crash, we steal their technology. Isn't that evolution for which humans thrives? I think we are ready to know the truth, the real truth!!
