Duration:30 seconds
Triangular shape - intense lights - silent and vanished in speed of light

I was traveling on I-84 West, coming around the West Hartford curves. There was an intense bright light, low on the horizon. I wondered why an aircraft would be so low as the airport is too far away.

As I approached, the light did not move. The light was so intense and bright that I cannot find words to accurately describe it. I kick myself to this day for not stopping - I was in such shock that I kept driving.

As I got closer, the object was above the Troutbrook Exit. It had to be only 200 feet in the air above me. It made no sound. It was silver, triangular shape. It had a red light on the tip and red and white lights on the bottom. It had an elongated rectangular door.

As I got underneath, I was able to see that the underside was concave. After I passed it, I could no longer see it behind me. It vanished - it was completely silent.

In early December, 2005 I saw the same intense light above my house as I came down my street. (appx. 5 miles from original sighting) I thought to myself, as soon as I get past these trees I'm going to stop this time and really look at it. Within a half of a second I was on the otherside of the trees and the light was gone - no where to be seen anywhere in the clear sky.

((NUFORC Note: Date may be approximate, although the witness does not indicate that fact. Source of the report describes self as an "investigator." We do not know if the party implies that she is a UFO investigator. PD))
