Mystery in sky over Waterbury

Waterbury (WTNH) _ Mixed in with the usual reports of crime and neighborhood nuisance, Waterbury police received a number of unusual calls last night. People reported unidentified objects in the sky.
Bright blue skies could be seen in Waterbury today, but Wednesday night something peculiar, eerie and slow moved across Connecticut skies.
“I heard a little thunder, something like that,” Jim Carter, of Waterbury, said.
Remember Roswell, New Mexico 1947? Ring a bell? That’s when witnesses say they saw a flying saucer, carrying aliens, crash. While there was no crash last night, some Waterbury residents are wondering do extraterrestrial beings inhabit our world? Are there aliens among us?
It was shortly after 8:00 PM Thursday when the calls came pouring into the Waterbury Police Department. Neighbors at 578 Wilson Street say they saw globe-like objects flying in the sky.
Witnesses say the bright globe-like objects hovered in the sky for nearly 20 minutes. Carl Dippelhofer, of Waterbury, believes that aliens are a possibility.
“There probably is, there probably is aliens out there,” Dippelhofer said.
While the Waterbury Police Department refused to comment, there’s no denying that witnesses saw something and they want answers.
“I’m home tonight, I’m off of work, I’ll be looking up there tonight to see if I can see anything around that time,” Mary Carter, of Waterbury, said. “I will.”
Carter said she wants to know what many Americans have questioned for decades: are there aliens among us?
Meanwhile, Bradley International Airport, along with Waterbury-Oxford Airport, said there were no reports of anything unusual in the skies over Connecticut last night.
