Connecticut witness feels "caught watching" triangle UFO and flees scene
A late night commuter was driving home from work near midnight on January 3, 2014, when they spotted a triangular shaped UFO hovering over a nearby wooded area.
The witness first noticed bright lights while heading south on Terry Plains Road in Simsbury, Connecticut, just northeast of Hartford, at 11:40 PM, according to a report submitted to MUFON (Mutual UFO Network).
"The lights I saw were extremely bright," the witness told MUFON.
"There were three white lights and one center red light in a triangular formation. As I drove closer within 300 feet from the object, I could see it hovering just above the trees."
The witness drove close to the object to get a better look, eventually turning their vehicle around to get a better view. Despite two nearby airports, the witness ruled out aircraft or tower lights after closer inspection of the UFO.
"When I saw it move by me I realized that the object also had multiple white lights on the sides of the triangle as well. I didn't see those side lights because of the position the object was in initially when I came upon it and the brightness of the main three white lights."
The hovering craft began to move.
The witness decided to follow the object, and for safety reasons, chose not to try to take images with their camera phone while driving.
"Now I was headed in the same direction as the object but couldn't see it because it was hidden behind the tree line. I thought I might see it again just up ahead a little in the opening were there are horse stables and a side road to stop my car."
The witness reported that they stopped the car and opened their moon roof for a closer look upwards.
"I didn't stick around to watch it any longer."
"It felt like it was right over my car. I looked up through my moon roof window and was startled so much that I remember saying out loud 'it's right there.' I felt as if 'they' caught me watching them. At that point I didn't stick around to watch it any longer."
The witness said that they saw no other cars or witnesses to the event, and hopes that other people who did see it may come forward to corroborate the sighting.
