A resident of Old Saybrook, Connecticut, was stunned to see a fleet of glowing orbs flying through the skies. The person, who goes by the YouTube account Ginger Sailor, began filming the odd lights which were seemingly flying in formation.
There were up to nine of the lights which appeared in the sky for up to three minutes.
The person filming the video expresses obvious disbelief as the lights dart through the sky.
Writing in a caption of the video on YouTube, Ginger Sailor said: “Around 8 or 9 orbs travelled in the same direction for a few minutes before disappearing in Old Saybrook, CT about 2-3 miles away from Saybrook Point around 7:30 pm on September 19, 2020.
“They were not airplanes. I don’t know what they were so they are technically UFOs.”
Alien researchers quickly picked up on the video and were stunned by the organisation of the UFOs.
Prominent alien enthusiast Scott C Waring remarked on how the seemingly controlled manoeuvres of the lights show that even aliens adhere to safety standards.
Mr Waring made the claim on his blog UFO Sightings Daily.
He said: “When UFOs fly together, they often take on a formation with the ones closest to them.
For example, the eratic nature of the lights could mean they are flares, or Chinese lanterns caught in the wind.
There has so far been no conclusive evidence of aliens on Earth and recent research suggests we may be more alone than first thought.
A scan of more than 10 million stars across the Milky Way left researchers disappointed after finding no signs of technology.
Researchers using the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) in Australia were looking for ‘technosignatures’ – signs of technology coming from a planet which could include satellites or radio waves emitting from a celestial body.
Chenoa Tremblay, a researcher with Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), said: “The MWA is a unique telescope, with an extraordinarily wide field-of-view that allows us to observe millions of stars simultaneously.
“We observed the sky around the constellation of Vela for 17 hours, looking more than 100 times broader and deeper than ever before.
“With this dataset, we found no technosignatures – no sign of intelligent life.”
