I saw a stationary orb of flashing lights in the sky surrounded by an aura-like electric looking mist

At around 9:20pm on Friday, February 16th, 2024, I was out walking my dog up the hill of Dann Drive in Stamford, CT when I spotted a bright light in the sky to the west, which was completely stationary. It was a cold and clear night, many stars were visible and this was noticeably larger and closer than any star.

It blinked multicolored lights (I think blue and red and maybe one other color) like an airplane so I thought that it likely was, until I stopped to stare at it in reference to the trees below it. I realized it wasn’t moving - it was completely still except for a hazy, mist-like aura that surrounded it that seemed to be flashing with an electric charge. I couldn’t make out a shape of a craft if there was one - it was a little too far and all I could make out were what I think were three flashing lights and the electric aura.

I fixed my eyes on it as I walked my dog further up the street, only 3 houses away from mine, feeling in my bones that I was witnessing something not of this world. The feeling that overcame me was complete awe and amazement because I had never seen anything like it before. Not more than a minute and a half after the first sight of it, I took my eyes away and looked further up the street in front of the next house and quickly noticed a dark figure standing in the yard near the street and immediately feel like I’m being watched and it terrifies me. My knees literally started shaking and I dragged my dog to run back home and get inside. I believe he had seen the figure too, because his eyes were fixated on something as I was trying to drag him away.

It might’ve been someone out walking their dog, but whatever it was spooked the hell out of me and I felt an instinctual need to run away from it. Regardless, I wish I had more time to witness the phenomenon in the sky for longer, but the whole ordeal lasted about 3 minutes. For as long as I saw it, the uap remained in the same position and elevation in the sky.

I didn’t have my phone on me the entire time but when I went inside, I immediately texted my partner exactly what I saw and how terrified I was. About 8 minutes after I first noticed the uap, I heard and saw a helicopter circling the area, which seemed to confirm my suspicion that something strange might be happening.

I investigated further to see if there had been any other uap sightings in the area and I came across this database. The two most recent submissions from CT were from two days ago and they detail the exact same thing that I saw in the sky, and the videos confirmed it. I had to report my account too, in hopes it can contribute to research and/or discoveries of any kind.

I don’t know how long it was in the sky for, but it remained while the helicopters were around, but it was shrouded in what looked like a tiny gray cloud when I looked out my window to see if it was still there about an hour later. An hour after that, it was completely gone.

I am not a UFO expert by but I am deeply invested and interested in UFO discourse and disclosure by the government. I look to the skies in hopes of seeing something extraterrestrial every day! I finally had my first experience and I had to share it.
