Two 14 year old girls observed a strange spectacle for quite a period of time on the night of September 15, 1967, near Winsted, Connecticut. Although they readily described what they saw, they refused to let their names be used. At 8:45 p.m., the two girls were in the bedroom, one was staying overnight with the other, and looking out the window when their attention was attracted by an egg shaped glowing object which appeared to be about the size of a Volkswagen car. It was about 600' away in a field and looked as though it was over or beyond a barn complex.
They watched the thing for at least 35 minutes while it moved back and forth, occasionally hovering. On occasion, the color of the object would change from white to beige to pink to a deep red orange in a continuous pattern, then reverse the procedure. This took place about ten times during the course of the observation.
After a period of time, the girls heard a noise from the direction of the barn which sounded like a lawn mower starting up. Immediately following that, two small figures emerged quickly from the barn and stood by the mailbox next to the road, and appeared to be staring in the direction of the house.
The girls could not get a good look at the figures because the clouds repeatedly blocked out the moon. They said they had fleeting impressions more than anything else, but did judge the figures were less than 4' tall and appeared to be wearing similar outfits.
One of the girls stated her impression that one of the figures, which she could see more clearly than the other, appeared to have an abnormally large head.
The figures were in the vicinity of the mailbox for about two minutes, then darted quickly across the road and stood under a large tree in its shadow. During this period, the object in the field continued its maneuvers.
The girls considered the possibility that the two small, dark figures might have been children, but discounted it because they felt it would have been impossible for them not to have seen the object, and if they had been children, they should have reacted to it, but they didnít.
The figures stood by the tree for a matter of moments until car headlights appeared down the road. Then they ran back across the street, where they were joined by a third figure, all three of whom ran across the lot by the side of the barn and disappeared in the darkness.
The light went out on the object and stayed out until the car was out of sight up the road. The object stayed around, still maneuvering, for quite some time.
The girls tired of watching, but later showed it to the mother who had been out shopping, but by this time, it was very dim and a considerable distance away. A neighbor across the street watched the craft for a few minutes, became frightened, and went back into the house. The neighbor did not see the figures. Two adults in Winsted saw what apparently was the same or similar object for a period of five minutes, within forty minutes of the sighting at the barn.
