Bright Lights above Burlington

A recent night of stargazing proved anything but ordinary for Odd Encounters reader, Dorian. On the evening of August 5, 2011, Dorian was sitting outside his Burlington home, gazing at a summer sky full of stars, when he witnessed a startling sighting of a brilliant UFO.

Dorian recounts: “Suddenly out of the corner of my eye, I got a glimpse of a red light that just came out of nowhere.” Dorian turned to witness a huge flying object spinning in the night sky. “It had a big red light in the center of it with three small lights on each side of the bigger light.” He sat there, alone in the dark, watching the unidentified flying object as it hovered high above him. “It then turned sideways and flew EXTREMELY quickly down from the sky and then disappeared into nothingness.”

Whatever it was in the darkness above Burlington, Dorian has not seen it since but does keep his eyes peeled, just in case.
