NUFORC Sighting 5596

Occurred: 1977-06-29 03:00 Local
Reported: 1999-02-18 00:00 Pacific
Duration: 15-30 minutes
No of observers: 2

Location: Waitesfield, VT, USA

Shape: Light

Viewed from a large open field. Two fuzzy glowing orange lights, aligned horizontally, about 45 degrees from the horizon, grew gradually larger and brighter, and merged into a single enormous trapezoid shape, at least 15-20 times the size of a full moon. Not a distinct object: It remained a fuzzy-edged bright orange light. There was no sound. Scared, I went inside. My friend claimed that the light gradually shrank and disappeared. When I went out again, maybe 10-15 minutes later, there was just a faint glow in the sky. My friend, who'd lived there several years, said he'd never seen or heard of anything like this. I'm a professional photographer, but was too scared to photograph this phenomenon (a big regret!). I was age 23.
