Further Description of Sighting: I was about nine years old, looking out a second floor window of my house in the middle of New Haven. It was broad daylight in the summer or spring. I looked past the chimney of the next house and saw an object in the distance.
I’m afraid my memory is blurry. I wish I could say that I remember it clearly, but in fact I mostly remember looking out the window and then my descriptions of what I saw as I told my parents and others later. I drew a picture of it just after I saw it, but I don’t know what became of the picture.
What I told others, and what I seem to remember, is that it was silver, had many small windows, much like a very large airplane, and did not really move for a little while. It hung there, in the distance, as I continued to see it past the chimney.
It was not shaped like a plane. It was a disk. It was very long, and seemed larger and lower in the sky than any planes I had seen before in the area. It was far away, but I could see the windows clearly. It did not change in shape and did not really move. Of course everyone told me it was a plane, but I knew what a plane looks like, and I wasn’t THAT young. It was absolutely not a plane.
Really it was a very mundane looking object, despite not being shaped like anything I had seen in the sky before. I’d like to believe it was just the government testing out some new military gizmo, but why the hell would they pick New Haven, or Connecticut, at all? I know what I saw, and though I wish someone would have believed little me, nothing anyone says will change that I saw it.
