Posted: 5/31/2022
Location: Westport, CT
Shape: Circle
Duration: Approximately 1 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Silent, very slow moving, pulsing red lights under perimeter, passed directly overhead, making 90 degree change of direction, S to W.

I was returning home from me job, across the main road (Post Road), on the 5mph entrance road to the Lansdowne Condos, when I noticed out the windshield, that a craft was passing very slowly above me. I immediately stopped, to just observe it. I could hear nothing. I rolled my window down, and still heard nothing. It was a crystal clear night, so it was extremely difficult to guess at it's physical size. There were trees lining both sides of the road ahead of me, that I estimate were about 40 feet tall. The roadway was about 30 feet wide. From my vantage point, if the craft was just clearing the trees, I would estimate that it was at least 50-60 feet in diameter. But, since the evergreen trees were not illuminated by the pulsing red lights on the underside perimeter of the craft, and there were no street lights illuminating the underside of the craft, I could not clearly determine it's elevation. It may have been several hundred feet above me, in which case, from my vantage point, it would have had to have been as wide, or wider than a football field. If it was at the lower elevation, it seemed to just hover over the same road that I was traveling, and seemed to have changed direction, to the right, above the T in the road, exactly where I made the same turn. I quickly drove to that corner and turned, and the craft was no longer in sight.
