Duration: 2-3 minutes
No of observers: 2

Location: Roxbury, CT, USA

Shape: Sphere

Dark spherical object sighted moving south to north at a rapid pace in the Litchfield Hills area of Connecticut.

There was one craft dark gray to black in color. The shape was a squashed sphere. There appeared to be a lump on the bottom center. It appeared metalic. It traveled from south to north smoothly and without a sound. We get many balloons over this area. This object did not appear to be a balloon as it traveled much faster.

We are located at N40º 32.517' W73º 20.131'. I was in the back yard at dusk when I looked up to observe a private plane flying over head north to south. I then noticed the object higher and to our west traveling south to north. At first I thought it was another plane, but there was no sound. It looked round and not at all like a plane. I would have dismissed it at that point as a balloon were it not for the color and speed of travel. I ran to the house for binoculars and sure enough it was indeed round (spherical) in shape. My wife and I watched until it disappeared to the north.


Witness describes self as having considerable technical background. PD
