Posted: 6/12/2007
Location: Southington, CT
Shape: Fireball
Duration: < 15 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
A fireball-like object twice the size of a star appeared and moved north with great speed, followed by a flash of light.

At the specified time, looking into the partially clouded sky to the north, and object about two to three times the size of a normal star appeared. Red in color, with a purplish haze encompassing it, it appeared almost on fire and streaked with remarkable speed to the north. There was no noise, however moments later a flash from the north could be seen reflected off the clouds.

The flash may have been a coincidental lightning flash - however, after remaining watching the north for some minutes, no other flashes occurred. It also could not have been a shooting star, as it was sighted with clouds behind it.

The observer, myself, is a 22 year old male with 20/20 vision, no history of mental illness, no physical illness, well-rested, not taking any medications, and not under the influence of any drug(s).
