Posted: 1/12/2012
Location: Southbury, CT
Shape: Other
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Orange light travelling with intent in sky, no fuseage, just light.

I saw a round light travel west then slowly turn towards the south/southeast. I was on I84 in CT between exit 14 & 15. Iwas travelling east with my 4 year old, who also saw it. I saw it against a partly cloudy sky but very bright moonlight. It looked like an orange light, round, the whole time. But it was not partcularly large, as I had a clear view against the clouds. It had no "body" other than the light (one would see the fuselage that close). I pulled over to get a better view, and watched it disappear over a hill.

I'm 34, an engineer, and always had a logical explanation for everything I've in the sky until this. Now I'm on record. I took video with my phone but it was way too dark.
