Sky Distortions in Connecticut & Louisiana

Joe Trainor reports that Karen and her husband were sitting in their hot tub on October 20, 2001, on a beautiful, clear, starry, cloudless night.  Karen said, "We watched a plane go overhead and a few minutes later at 10:30 PM I noticed a distortion appear coming out of the west.  You could tell there was an object there because the distortion made a circular shape.  There was a ring of small lights on what I will call the front, the portion moving towards the east."  I immediately said to my husband, "What is that?"  As it passed over our heads he noticed the distortion as it headed away.  I lost it trying to turn around.  He did not see any ring of lights above the distortion the way I did.  It moved quickly almost gliding through the sky.  It was completely silent.  If it hadn't been for the distortion you would not have noticed it at all because it seemed to be camouflaged with the night sky.  I hate to use this analogy but in the movie Predator you can tell the creature is there by the distortion, but you can't see any other type of identifying marks.  That's the best way I know how to describe it.  We are still asking ourselves, what was that.  There were small lights in a row on the "top" front only.  The 'Distortion' was just like the night sky.  Our best guess is that it was 500 feet high and going roughly 500 miles per hour.  It was faster than a plane and glided in total silence.  Thanks to Joe Trainor FIFO


Billie Brinkley reports I had a weird sighting October 21, 2001, about 11:30 PM when I went outside to smoke and look at the expected meteor shower.  Instead I saw a transparent blob like 'Distortion'.  It looked like the "Predator" did in the movie.  You could see the stars through it, but it definitely had edges.  It lasted for just a few seconds and then just disappeared.  It looked fairly close and pretty low in the sky.  I've seen these things before, but not usually so close.   My son works late hours and came in late.  This morning he got up and told me that he also saw something weird about 3:30 AM, when he went out to smoke.  He said, "It was like a big ball of light that dimmed out and became transparent, but looked like the "Predator"...his words.  He said he watched it for several minutes and then it disappeared.  I had not told him about my earlier sighting until this morning.  There was weird stuff going on in the skies of Louisiana last night.   Thanks to Louise A. Lowry SHnSASSY1 and Billie
