Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|2:36am in Stonington, Ct there was a bar of light in the upper right sky about the sz of an inch, it tilted to right, then sped away
This morning, August 11th, 2010, at about 2:36 am, I was driving home from Foxwoods casino, as I had passed our local movie theater a ways (regal cinema in Stonington,Ct), I suddenly saw a bar of light to my upper right in the night sky. It was white light like a bunch of stars linked together to form a line about an inch wide from my perspective. And it tilted down to the right a bit.
I was thinking how it couldn’t be a plane or anything like that because those are usually one dot and slowly moving. This was like if an edge of a coin were lit up in a line and it wasn’t really moving.
Then it slowly tilted with purpose (again this was strange to me because if it were a man made prop or something far away the effort to so even would be quite difficult) like when you weigh something with those doctor scales and you get the lead weight right it kind of has this slow settling into place as it gets its balance. Like that. It tilted in that ‘gaining balance’ way for another 20 degrees tilting down on the right side.
Suddenly it looked like it was moving forward away from me for a moment and then I got this sense of a burst of incredible speed because the lights became smaller so quick they practically winked out they were gone so fast.
I was not tired. I was not drunk. I have never made such a claim before. I saw my first UFO. I have no idea what it was alien, military, or otherwise but Unidentified Flying Object. Oh yes.
