Description: Since the newspaper article appeared in today's New Haven, Connecticut Register regarding the lights over the Long Island Sound I wasn't surprised to find people looking for the lights at Old Grove Park in West Haven, Connecticut. (Click here to read article.) We took a walk at 7:30 tonight and as soon as it got dark, around 8 PM sure enough, the lights appeared again, all 4 of them. They moved around and under one another and disappeared and reappeared just like we had seen them before a few weeks ago. (The witness had a similar sighting on August 20, 2008.) This time they were different in that they "flickered" rather than holding a steady light like the last time we saw them. People gathered to exchange ideas about what they could be, but no one really knows. Rosemary (the woman that wrote the article in today's newspaper) happened to be there and she said that she and others had notified the police Department as well as the Coast Guard about previous sightings, but they wouldn't respond since it wasn't an emergency. Others called the newspaper and left numbers for a return call, but no one ever returned the calls. Really strange!

August 20, 2008 Report Submitted by The Same Witness: A few weeks ago me and some others witnessed an odd sight in the night sky from Old Grove Park. Five lights hovering over the Long Island Sound in the area of what appeared to be either Milford or Stratford. They were visible for at least 45 minutes. Some thought they were helicopters. We heard no sounds as they moved around at intervals and seemed to be pretty close together. Did anyone get to check this out?

Comments: There have been many sightings in this area during the past month. The article in the New Haven Register discusses these sightings. The witness also had an earlier sighting of similar lights on August 20, 2008. The source of these lights is unknown. The photo of the lights in the newspaper is quite interesting.
