Reports of an orange-red sphere silently crossing the night sky continue to be received in the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
This latest report is a July 31 sighting of four similar objects spotted from the Connecticut coastline overlooking Long Island Sound.
"I was standing outside looking at the water and the sky, and noticed a large round red/orange object in the sky moving from the east and traveling west," the reporting witness stated.
Witness image was cropped and reduced in size. MUFON database
"It appeared to have tear drop or flower petal shapes which pointed toward the center."
The object appeared to maintain the same speed until directly overhead, when it increased speed and went into a climb. The object then appeared to decrease in size until it could no longer be seen.
A few minutes later, the group reports seeing the same or a similar object. They witnessed four of the same objects that evening. One of the witnesses took photos, but reports only one image came out well enough to present (posted on this page.)
Dozens of similar reports flooded the MUFON witness reporting database in July 2010.
The following is the unedited and as yet uninvestigated report filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If New England MUFON Director Steve Firmani investigates and reports back on this case, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.
