Description: First, we heard a loud pervasive sound with a steady beeping. My husband thought it sounded mehanical. Every sound for about 5 minutes occurred before an extremely bright white light illuminiated in the forest. The light which was large and tall blinked then reblinked about 10 times. In the background was lightening that could have been a mile away, but the skies were clear with all of the stars very clearly evident.
The motion of the object seemed to go to the east. We spotted the bright light after hearing the beeping sound. This was about 200 feet from our home on the Pomfret/Eastford town lines in Connecticut.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
