According to the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC), Connecticut might be a popular stopover for UFOs during their intergalactic flights, and in case you were wondering, NUFORC is a 100% legitimate organization. There were 2,024 reports of UFOs filed by Connecticut residents in 2023. The following are some of those reports.

Occurred: 1970-09-19 19:00:00 ...Location details: A long, dark country road north of UConn in Storrs, Ct.

Shape: Disk...Duration: 5 to 10 minutes...No of observers: 3

Reported: 2023-08-07 13:07:07 Pacific...Posted: 2023-09-10 00:00:00

Characteristics: Lights on object...We were tracked by an alien craft. My friend, cousin & I were students on our way to visit friends. There were no street lights in the country & a tall, long row of pine trees on our left side. Someone noticed a craft to our immediate left flying low over the trees. It was closely pacing our car. We were feeling scared and vulnerable & kept driving north. The craft was round with a dome. There were rotating lights around the middle & it was silent. The lights had 3 colors, but I am not sure which ones.

It seemed they might be analyzing us. After 5 or 10 minutes, it made a sudden 45-degree angle & shot instantly into the sky. With relief, we turned around & headed back to campus. You can't unsee an alien craft up close. This subject has been of keen interest all these years.

NUFORC Sighting 178632...Occurred: 2023-09-16 20:15:00 Local

Location: Southbury, CT, USA...Location details: Front yard, top of a ridge

Shape: Changing...Duration: 5 minutes...No of observers: 0

Reported: 2023-10-01 13:34:29 Pacific...Posted: 2023-10-28 00:00:00

Characteristics: Lights on object, Changed Colors...2 Flashing orbs/cubes caught circling each other, then going to a wider diameter, then separating and going off in opposite directions.

Description:  At 8:15, I noticed two bright lights in the sky circling each other in a tight circle, then into a larger circle. Then, the two lights went off in opposite directions of each other (one SW and one NE). I was able to take a pic of them close together; then, the second video shows them going away from each other. The third 44-second video is of one of the crafts/lights leaving. When you zoom in, the object is flashing multiple colors and seems to be rotating/tumbling. No sounds came from either of the crafts, and no vapor trail or any obvious way of propulsion.

A new analysis from NUFORC explains it's not the number of UFO reports filed but the number of individuals who witnessed the same thing at the same location, which gives more credibility to the sightings. According to The Getaway,  the following are the TOP 5 must-see destinations for every UFO fan.

  1. The Colorado UFO Watchtower
  2. Chile, San Clemente
  3. New Mexico's Roswell
  4. Nevada's Area 51
  5. Sedona's UFO Hunting Grounds
