Oblong shaped flying object witnessed by 3 women near Ascutney, VT

Date: February 5, 1985
Location: Ascutney, Vermont, United States

Three women were driving to a high school basketball game when they noticed a bright object in the night sky. They described it as basically oblong in shape, with an extremely bright white light at the front end. There seemed to be a sphere or halo of a grayish-bluish hue around the middle of the object, and lots of tiny flashing lights at the rear. One of these, a small white light, was stationary for a while but suddenly detached itself from the rest of the lights and sped rapidly away.

[excerpt from article]

Those strange lights that so many people spotted in the sky over Windsor a couple of years ago are back.

They were spotted by three local ladies who were headed down to Springfield for the high school basketball game, last Tuesday. Myra Poland was driving with Judy Smiley and Brenda Boudro as her passengers. About halfway to Ascutney, they noticed a light in the southern sky that seemed much brighter than anything normal like a star or an airplane. By the time they had reached Carney's Market in Ascutney, the ladies began to take note of the fact that the light, by now obviously not a star, hadn't moved. Then it did begin to move, coming straight north and eventually passing right over the car. It also descended to quite a low level, although no one is sure just how low it got.

"It was bright, brighter than anything you'd normally see," said Myra, who was driving the car. She added that, at first, she thought that the object might be a helicopter, but then she realized that it was too high to be such a craft. A veteran of the sightings two years ago, Myra said that Tuesday night's object appeared similar to the ones she observed back then.

All three of the ladies agreed that whatever they saw was much bigger than any normal aircraft. They described it as basically oblong in shape, with an extremely bright white light at the front end. There seemed to be a sphere or halo of a grayish-bluish hue around the middle of the object, and lots of tiny flashing lights at the rear. One of these, a small white light, was stationary for a while but suddenly detatched itself from the rest of the lights and sped rapidly away.

It was after the smaller light disappeared that the object began to come lower to the ground. Each of the ladies claimed to be terrible judges of distance, but Judy and Brenda said that they thought it might have gotten to within 200 feet of the ground, "lower than any plane would have been," while Myra thought it got about to the level of Mt. Ascutney. They all agreed that it made no noise that they could hear, although they did not stop or get out of the car. There was no effect on the car from the closeness of the object, they said.

"It was just huge," said Brenda, adding that the object had no visible wings. She called WNNE-TV upon her return from Springfield but the station had not received any other reports of sightings. Brenda said that they lost sight of the object when they turned south onto the Interstate as it was heading north, right over the car so that she had to look up out the rear window to watch it.

"I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation for this," she said, "but I wish the people who know would tell us what it is."
