Location: Lakes Region area of Central New Hampshire, NH
|On the approximate date, I was a Police Officer on-duty in the Town of Gilford, New Hampshire. I was working the 4 to 12 pm shift, and observed a number of objects in the sky from a high land observation point called Liberty Hill in the town of Gilford. The objects appeared to be in a perfect formation flashing lights back and forth between them as they hovered stationary in the sky.
I left work at 2400 Hrs. and headed towards my home in Sanbornton, NH, (03269) and met up with another Police Officer, ((name deleted)) of the Tilton Police Department, Tilton, NH. We sat on the edge of Interstate 93 for approximately 2 hours watching the objects, mostly stationary in the sky-flash light back and forth.
Finally the objects flew South over I-93, and we communicated this information via radio to NH State Police Headquarters and they acknowledged the objects were over their location.
The next morning we were instructed to not speak about this incident again as it might cause panic amongst the population of the Towns and State.
