Trooper, Motorist: Mysterious Object Fell From Sky


news.yahoo.com

Authorities in northwestern Connecticut say they didn't find anything after a state trooper and another person reported a large object falling out of the sky in Litchfield.

I find this interesting. It screams meteor to me, but the witness "driving in Litchfield at about 2 a.m. Tuesday reported that a green, glowing object the size of a whale fell from the sky and crashed into Bantam Lake."

A state trooper 10 miles away saw it too, though not exactly where it landed.

Bantam Lake is the largest natural lake in Connecticut with a surface area of over 900 acres and a maximum depth of 23ft. Apparently, fire crews rode around the lake in a boat looking for airplane wreckage but were unable to find anything.

Pretty neat! Curious if they'll send a dive team out to explore further, or if we'll hear more from the witnesses.

"The size of a whale" ??? That's a new description. Never heard that analogy before.

This reminds me of a extremely bright (like a welding color white) object that went streaming past my window in 2002 back in upstate NY.
I literally got into my car and drove over to Connecticut because I was sure it had to have crashed somewhere. It was definitely not a meteor(ite). This was a spherical object, at low attitude moving as fast as a plane.

I find Yahoo's headlines more fascinating these stories. Why are they so interested in Mars and UFOs lately?
Things that make me go 'hmmmmmm'.

I'm curious if anyone else saw this or was on the lake at the time. Because if it hit water and was the size of a whale, then it would have made an enormous spash and waves.

Thanks for the thoughts. The size of a whale thing got me thinking, but I also recently read that meteor activity always peaks in March/April (though I forget the reasoning why). Maybe someone can help me out with that article.

Granted, it was 2am and if the object was "glowing" it very well could have appeared to be much larger than it actually was. If a solid object did indeed crash into the lake, then it can most definitely be recovered...

That is, if it didn't take off from the lakebed later in the evening.


Anyone on ATS near the lake, and also have diving equipment?

A few years ago I saw a very, very bright meteor that was miles away from my location. Looked enormous, and like it definitely would've hit ground. It's a pretty cool sight.

That would be because it is a poor means of description.

Smallest whale species is the Dwarf Sperm Whale- maximum length: 2.7 meters

Largest whale species is the Blue Whale- maximum length: 30 meters

That is a fairly wide term, 'whale-sized'.

I am glad it wasn't fish-sized, that would really have us guessing.

Perhaps not.....the size of the object may have been smaller than the firestreak or fireball attached......
Or the object may have slowed down before submerging,
Also 23 feet is shallow enough to see through to find such a large object...or a small cheap fish finder would definately find it.
This is easily cleared up with minimal expense or investigation i believe.....we could do it Through ATS members alone if we were a bit more organised and enthused.....
primarily we watch and make wise pronouncements but do fairly SFA about much.
Thia is a quite interesting event because its so easy to check out.....i hope somebody in Conn. thats able will look for it.
perhaps post an update....

I wonder if it looked something like this
. What causes a meteor to turn green? The chemical compounds it's made up of?

They didn't find anything so the ship took off.
Thus it was not falling.
The ship was moving under its own power.

Just read this on Yahoo News too!! Very interesting!! I bet their are scientist all over that lake looking for the "Whale sized object"!!

Weird thing is they don't mention an explosion or loud crash??

Do you think our magnetic field and atmosphere is weakening to a point that these objects are able to penetrate through?? Just a thought

I'm thinking it had to be smaller than the witnesses reported. If it's anything like Minnesota lakes there are hundreds of cabins and houses on the lake. An object that big at terminal velocity would have woke up everyone on the lake.

Time to get some divers in that lake, 23 feet deep and 900 acres is a puddle, should be easy to find.

Good point!
That's like trying to recall someone's name and saying "I know it began with a letter in the alphabet"

I can't speculate on the impact a weakening magnetic field would have in terms of allowing objects from outer space to enter more easily.

Mystery Daytime Fireball in Texas

This article claims that "no one really knows" why meteor activity is always greater in March and April. This may have been the article I referenced in my first reply.

I'll give you that, but would you agree that when people compare the size of something to a whale, they're often erring on the side of the larger species as comparison?

That looks like the one I saw a few years ago, except its brilliance (luminosity) fluctuated greatly. It looked like the one in your video, then it flashed brightly and then returned to its original luminosity before disappearing/impacting over the horizon.

That "fireball" in Texas was an airplane.

Just like the one in socal last year, the setting sun reflects off of the contrail if conditions are right and it looks like it's streaming fire.

This event is nothing like that.

USO don't crash silly. They gently and effortlessly glide into the water like a swan catching a fish.

You are incorrect. The story has changed, but now NASA has weighed in with their final verdict.

Quote from the article:

"The video [shown on news outlets] was of a jet contrail, but there WAS an actual daytime fireball over Texas on [April 2]. Two different things happening at about the same time, which always leads to confusion," Cooke told Life's Little Mysteries, a sister site to SPACE.com.

Right NASA telling us the truth. Does this mean NASA has a team on site to make the statement.

I used to trust NASA, I've come to the conclusion they are no more than a mouth piece for a higher group.

Read the article. It's not just NASA that has confirmed. There you can also read about a similar event that happened in New Zealand on the same day.
