Reported: 7/6/2013 4:33:31 PM 16:33
Location: Fairfield, CT
Duration: ~2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
|Glowing pinkish red object. Heading north and silent running.
Viewing Location: Looking inland from the beach off Fairfield Beach Rd. across from Pine Creek Marsh.
Description: The object was moving when we first noticed it. We were looking inland so the object was over land and not the water. It was headed in a northerly direction. From start to finish the distance traveled was about equal to 4 feet between outstretched arms.
This occurred a little after sundown. I don't remember the exact time. Sunset was at 8:28 .
The light resembled a road flare from a distance. Red and roundish in shape. We only saw the light and not the object creating the illumination. The light itself was too large to be a plane side-marker at the perceived distance. There were no other lights around the main one. The shade of red was not the deep red of a an aircraft marker but a softer shade and unblinking though atmospheric conditions caused the light to modulate somewhat. A tiny white light took the place of the red light toward the end of our viewing and as it traveled this light faded out. We heard no noises coming from the object.
