On Sunday, July 29, 2012, an unidentified person saw an unidentified flying object in the Woodbury sky and reported the UFO sighting on Ufostalker.com the next day:
"My roommate and his girlfriend went outside our apartment to smoke a cigarette, minutes later his girlfriend rushed dramatically upstairs insisting my girlfriend and I come outside immediately. Upon looking to the north/northwest direction in the night sky, 2 visible and unidentifable [sic] lights were present 1.) red triangular/sphere shape hovered around unlike any identifiable aircraft i've ever seen, it made no noise and no other identified aircraft were visible at this time, beside the red craft seemed to be a white light sphere/orb, smaller than the red craft beside it (my roommate claims that the white orb was originally the same as the red craft beside it and dimmed to a white orb before I made it outside.), it is unsure weather [sic] the sighting was one craft or two crafts attached. I took out my iPhone and filmed for about 15 seconds before I realized the crafts were too far and my digital video was sub par in terms of substantial evidence, however to the naked eye this phenomena was clearly a UFO sighting. after about 10-15 minutes of speculation and astonishment the red craft flickered and dimmed until it was the same color and size of the smaller white orb, at this point it was evident the crafts were trying to conceal themselves, slowly the orbs dimmed into the horizon (this all took place within a 45 minute to an hour period) 7/29/12, WOODBURY CT"

A commenter going by the name "Jeff" posted on the Woodbury entry of the reported UFO sighting and said he saw the same lights when driving around Litchfield on Sunday, July 29:
"What I saw was a very bright craft, white lights, that appeared to be hovering like a helicopter. It was pretty probably a couple thousand feet up and I did not pull my car over to see if I could hear anything as I needed to be somewhere."
