A steady, hovering object flashing a silver-green light over treetops in daylight.

A few weeks ago my father told me he saw a bright green object he originally thought was a bird. His property has a broad, majestic view of a forested hillside. This “bird” was cruising at a steady pace, very evenly, over the forest, and flashing a silver and green light. Eventually it went down into the trees and disappeared.

I made fun of my father for this UFO. But then today we were eating lunch, overlooking the hillside, and I saw a small, steady, hovering object flashing a silver and green light, just over the treeline about 500 meters away. It was too small and quiet to be a plane or helicopter, too steady and odd to be a toy plane or weather balloon. The only thing I could think of was it could be a surveillance drone like the military uses. But that would (hopefully) be way out of place in Lyme.

The object continued flashing its light—silver-green, silver-green—and hovering in that oddly steady manner, and cruised off in a semi-slow pace until I lost sight of it.
