Recent UFO reports in the region


There have been several recent UFO sightings in the region, according to the National UFO Reporting Center, a non-government organization that tracks UFO reports in the country.

As of Tuesday, there have been 30 UFO sightings in Connecticut reported to the organization in 2017.

The organization notes on its homepage that some of the reports are edited to make them more understandable. In addition, the organization attempts to eliminate what appears to be hoax reports.

“Those reports that deserve special attention, we feel, are those from sources who elect to remain anonymous, and/or who elect to provide no contact information,” the organization states on its website. “Also, we suspect that some of the reports that address a single source of light, passing generally from the western sky to the east may be the result of a sighting of the International Space Station.”

About 8:30 p.m. on July 23, someone in Meriden reported an egg shaped UFO flying “extremely low overhead,” according to the database. The reported craft was silent with a single red/pink light. It moved from east to west before disappearing behind trees.

About 8:20 p.m. on July 17, someone in Plainville noticed two “saucer like disks” flying along a commercial plane, but much higher. The disk passed two planes “like they were traveling two times their speed,” the report states.

About 9 a.m. on May 6, three people in Southington reported seeing red and green lights in the sky for five minutes before the lights disappeared. The lights were moving in circles, unlike a plane, and wasn’t making noise like a helicopter, the report states.
