By Roger Marsh,
A Connecticut couple stopped in traffic along southbound I-95 near Exit 73 report watching two disk-shaped objects hovering under 500 feet within 200 feet of the roadway, according to October 21, 2011, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
Just before the traffic slow-down, they first noticed an object hovering nearby...
I-95 Exit 73, Connecticut
"This object was a couple of hundred feet in the air and had blinking lights (approximately 4 or 5 lights)," the reporting witness stated. "As we were traveling at 55 to 65 mph and the road began to turn away from the direction of the object, I let go the image to maintain focus on the road ahead."
But then all traffic came to a standstill following a vehicle accident and they looked up again at the sky through a moon roof.
"The object I had just seen a few miles back was here - 'hovering'. What I saw was a large, flat, rounded disk (see object 1 below) with five lights, blinking on and off. These lights seemed to blink in a reticulating fashion. This object was approximately 400 to 500 feet above the ground and about 200 feet from the road."
But then they noticed there was a second, identical, object in the sky.
"This second object (see object 2 below) was moving slightly next to this first object (object 1). Object 2 was at a slightly lower altitude (possibly 50 feet below object 1). These two objects also appeared to be within 100 feet of each other. Both objects were exactly the same shape, had the same number of lights, same color and all five of the lights visible were blinking. It seems one craft lights blinked in the reticulating fashion and the other object's lights just came on and off."
The witness described the objects.
"These objects were disk-shaped. Both had five lights along the rim. This tells me, the craft had more than five lights, perhaps 15 to 20 around the entire circumference of the craft. The objects were two halves of an inverted bowl. Each craft had to be two to three inches in length from at arm's length. According to my calculations, this would make them approximately 80 feet long. The height of the craft would be one-quarter to one-fifth of its length. This calculation assumes the objects were 200 feet from the road (us) and 500 feet in the air. Estimated distance to objects from my location would be approximately 538 feet.
"The lights blinked on and off each second or less. One object's lights seemed to reticulate in a sequence.
"Though the sky was now dark, the lights from these objects and headlights from the backup traffic seemed to show the exterior color of these objects were 'silver'. In other words, I knew they were not black or some other color. More silver or light gray-like coloring."
