National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 1/4/2008 20:44 (Entered as : 01/04/08 20:44)
Reported: 1/5/2008 7:10:58 PM 19:10
Posted: 1/21/2008
Location: New Britain, CT
Shape: Diamond
Duration: 20:48
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Diamond-shaped craft with two orange lights hovering in the sky before fading and vanishing.

It was clear and cloudless night in my town and I was outside with my sister when I noticed a strange looking "airplane" to the north of our neighborhood flying at about 2,000 ft. It was distinctly diamond-shaped and had two small orange glowing lights facing us (the light to the right was slightly higher than the left).

At this point I was sure this was neither airplane nor helicopter as airplanes in my area have green, white, red, or blue lights and make very detectable sounds at night as do helicopters. It was also much too large to be a helicopter or a small airplane. The craft was moving unbelievably slow, almost as if it were hovering. After a couple of minutes of observation the orange lights started to fade until the whole craft including lights and silhouette disappeared completely. Again, this was a clear night so it had nothing to hide behind.

Note: My sister would not like to be contacted about this report/information.
