    Green, glowing, whale-sized object falls from sky into Connecticut lake

    Unsolved mystery: Conn. trooper, motorist report
    glowing object, size of whale, fell from sky
    (AP)
    LITCHFIELD, Conn. — 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.

    The Republican-American of Waterbury reports that a person 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. Officials say that at about the same time, a state trooper 10 miles away in Warren called dispatchers to report that something fell out of the sky and landed near Bantam or Morris.

    Morris firefighters made several passes up and down the lake in a boat looking for a possible plane crash, but didn’t find any debris.

    Authorities called off the search, leaving the mystery unsolved.

    Thanks. Much thanks. A pleasure to be back aboard, spotting green, glowing, whale-sized objects falling from the sky.

    When my son was younger he once claimed he saw pink elephants wandering the streets of Buffalo at 2 in the morning. I wonder if these two incidents could be related?

    My guess is a meteorite. It's interesting that it would be described as "whale sized" though. LOL. Which whale? And even though it may look like it landed in the lake, meteorites are pretty deceptive in where they land. I am wondering about any noise? That stuff does make noise. LOL.

    And yes, WFG, you have been missed...

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Perhaps it is a years worth of sanitized waste from the International Space Station. I know sometimes small blue icy things from planes come down and these are from the toilets! But the atmosphere is supposed to break things up on entry so.... who knows?

    A bit more added to the original AP report:
    Jon Nowinski, of the Smoking Gun Research Agency, said there have been several reports from the Wallingford and Meriden area recently of small glowing objects, which they believe are meteors.

    None have been described as large, however.

    Nowinski said reports of meteors or fireballs are common this time of year because of clear skies and people staying out later because of warm weather.

    It's ironic that someone on my local news forum posted a thread about seeing the exact same thing on Friday night, April 6th. He said he knows he saw a glowing multi-colored object in the sky.
