Did you see the round red lights in the Thursday night sky?

  • Published in Letters
To The Daily Sun,
On Thursday June 20, 2013, at approximately  9:45 - 10 p.m. in Canterbury:
We were outside watching fireflies on the path we have leading to our chicken coop. My boyfriend Damon Goss and I noticed in the sky what we thought to be planes. I grew concerned when I realised how closely they were flying from one another. About 100 feet from where we stood the objects were coming from the direction of Shaker Village. There were three red bright lights round in shape. There were two red lights that were clearly separate objects following closely to a much larger object. It flew closer to us; approximately 50 feet above us rather quickly. We were able to get a good look of the flying objects threw an opening in the trees. I saw a triangular shaped flying object with a haze around it. The front object was very large in size with red lights; the two separate objects that were following it looked like red balls of light moving in their own paths. The two red lights were flying behind it, never beside it. The three objects hovered slowly over the tree tops towards the north and over our pond in the back yard. We could not see them after they flew over the pond because of the many trees.
Unfortunately, my camera did not pick up what we saw, it actually turned off. I fumbled around trying to turn it back on in the mean time keeping my eyes on the objects. I am disappointed I was unable to capture vital proof. I would like to find out if anyone else in the surrounding areas saw what we saw.
My boyfriend did call the Canterbury Police Department and The National UFO Reporting Center. The center said they had a similar sighting called in from Connecticut that same night.
