In Connecticut this year, 62 reports were published with the NUFORC — some of which included pictures of what the observers saw. The sightings range from a “moving red disk” seen in the skies above Montville last month to a reflective cylinder that was spinning across the sky in Glastonbury.

Last year, 72 sightings were reported to NUFORC while the most reported sightings in a single year was 156 in 2012. Since 1994, more than 2,000 reports of UFO sightings in Connecticut have been made to NUFORC.

The greater interest in UFO’s has prompted the U.S. government to be more transparent about what some of these objects could be. This year, the U.S. Department of Defense launched the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office website, which includes information from government-researched “unidentified anomalous phenomena” that have been “declassified and approved for public release.”

According to Mike Panicello, the director of the Connecticut chapter of the national Mutual UFO Network, which investigates UFO activity, there are often common objects that are misconstrued for UFO’s. “We don’t believe everything is a true UFO. Connecticut has a lot of military stuff in the air … Sometimes a UFO is called that because there isn’t enough information. UFO just means what it says, not that it’s necessarily an alien,” Panicello told Connecticut Magazine in September. “We try to use scientific methods and be as objective and as serious as possible. We do our best to try to give a witness an answer for what they saw.
