'UFO' Sighting in Woodbury ... Monroe Too [POLL]

A hovering, glowing red craft paired with a hovering white orb was reportedly seen in Woodbury on Sunday, July 29, 2012. Two people in two different towns also reported seeing something unidentifiable in the sky that night.

On Sunday, July 29, 2012, an unidentified person saw an unidentified flying object in the Woodbury sky and reported the UFO sighting on Ufostalker.com the next day:

"My roommate and his girlfriend went outside our apartment to smoke a cigarette, minutes later his girlfriend rushed dramatically upstairs insisting my girlfriend and I come outside immediately. Upon looking to the north/northwest direction in the night sky, 2 visible and unidentifable [sic] lights were present 1.) red triangular/sphere shape hovered around unlike any identifiable aircraft i've ever seen, it made no noise and no other identified aircraft were visible at this time, beside the red craft seemed to be a white light sphere/orb, smaller than the red craft beside it (my roommate claims that the white orb was originally the same as the red craft beside it and dimmed to a white orb before I made it outside.), it is unsure weather [sic] the sighting was one craft or two crafts attached. I took out my iPhone and filmed for about 15 seconds before I realized the crafts were too far and my digital video was sub par in terms of substantial evidence, however to the naked eye this phenomena was clearly a UFO sighting. after about 10-15 minutes of speculation and astonishment the red craft flickered and dimmed until it was the same color and size of the smaller white orb, at this point it was evident the crafts were trying to conceal themselves, slowly the orbs dimmed into the horizon (this all took place within a 45 minute to an hour period) 7/29/12, WOODBURY CT"

The latitude and longitude given on the UFO Stalker website are latitude  41.53752 and longitude -73.225841. According to Steve Morse's latitude and longitude converter website, the UFO was reportedly seen somewhere in the vicinity of 5 Old Grassy Hill Rd. and 60 Transylvania Rd.

"The latitude and longitude presented here is an approximation to protect the reporters' identity," the UFO Stalker website stated.

A commenter going by the name "Jeff" posted on the Woodbury entry of the reported UFO sighting and said he saw the same lights when driving around Litchfield on Sunday, July 29:

"What I saw was a very bright craft, white lights, that appeared to be hovering like a helicopter. It was pretty probably a couple thousand feet up and I did not pull my car over to see if I could hear anything as I needed to be somewhere."

This is very interesting. I'm skeptical about UFOs but I do have to admit I saw something very similar to this on Saturday, July 28th between about 10:30 and 11:00 p.m. while driving along Pepper St. My view was intermittently blocked by trees, and once I got past the trees I couldn't see it anymore - gone! I've been wondering what it was I saw.

Hello All... I am the Director of the Smoking Gun Research Agency (www.sgra.org) - in fact, we recently presented programs with the Edith Wheeler library - and our organization is currently investigating the sightings reported on and around Sunday, July 29th. To date we have received communications from witnesses in Woodbury, Bethany, New Haven, and Milford who all appear to have witnessed the same or similar objects. I was informed of this thread of comments here on the Monroe Patch and would like to ask anyone who may have seen something as well to please contact our organization and share your observations. You can do-so anonymously if you wish, and we can be reached by email at sgra@sgra.org, phone at (203) 987 - SGRA, or you can visit our website and fill out a short Sighting Report Form available there. Thank you in advance! The more details we gather, the more we can investigate.

I saw an orange, not red light in the sky Sat. Sep. 1,2012. 10:30- 10:45 PM. I was on Cross Hill road in Monroe, CT between Moose Hill and RT 111. Sky was clear, moon almost full and bright. Looking at it when this orange ball showed up and traveled very fast, slowing, darting up and down then stopping and eventually fading. The fading was not because it flew out of sight. A min. later another orange ball of light did the same thing. Took a pic, but...it's not on my phone! Didn't look like a ship, didn't make any sound. If the moon looked basketball size then this was baseball size. the color, size and speed is what made me watch. I have NEVER seen something like this.

Call the government, stand on FOI, and ask what they were up to that night!
