Trooper, motorist report object falling from sky: wtnh.com

LITCHFIELD, Conn. (WTNH/AP) - 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. And now we know why.

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.

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.

State Police said they didn't find anything after a state trooper and a driver reported a large green glowing object, falling out of the sky. Some have said the so-called "UFO" was the size of a whale. Local fire and rescue crews who spent hours looking for any evidence found nothing.

"Maybe it was Morris' Loch Ness Monster," says Tom Dougherty, who came to a boat ramp to take a look. It's possible I guess, but then again, anything is possible. It's just another day I guess!"

So what was it? The answer comes from professional meteorologists. According to the National Weather Service, there was a meteor shower that morning.
