On Saturday night 03/07/09 shortly before 7:pm eastern time I was sitting in my vehicle which was parked in the driveway at my home in Chester Connecticut.I was listening to a rough mix of a track which I had just recorded in the studio the previous evening when I noticed a bright object coming into view in front of me. Looking towards my back yard into the neighboring property there is a very steep hill where at the top it is tree lined,it was above the top of the trees which I saw the bright light emerging from a distance.I really didn't think much of it at first figuring that this was maybe just a large aircraft. Being that there was nothing else present in the sky {at least from my vantage point within the car} at the time that all of this was occurring the light really seemed to stand out and I figured that I would just follow the flight path of this object since it would probably be heading almost directly over my vehicle in a short time, suddenly the object appeared to stop before it reached the treetops of the neighboring property. In the dark it's very hard to judge the actual distance away that this object was but I'm thinking maybe at least a half a mile? I continued to watch the object sit completely stationary in the sky and of course I now knew that my interpretation of what I was watching in the sky was totally incorrect, this couldn't be an Airplane. I must have sat in my vehicle for at least 5 minutes or so with my eyes fixed to the object and never once saw that it was moving, as a helicopter might move around when it's trying to hold a steady position. The object looked more or less roundish in shape and extremely bright {almost yellowish}, like a huge bright star only at least four times or more as bright and large as any star might ever be. At one point as I was still sitting there I observed a small airplane fly relatively close by the object dwarfing it in size. It definitely makes me wonder whether the small plane was also checking out the same thing that I was? The next thing that I did was go into the house to tell my wife about what had just occurred and also knock on my landlords door so that they could both also be witness to what I was seeing. All three of us then went out onto the back porch and viewed the object which remained motionless in the sky to the naked eye, I'd also like to state that there was no audible sound associated with it,at least from where our point of reference was. While we were observing the object I had called my brother on the phone to inform him and also decided to try and find a pair of binoculars which I knew I had in the house somewhere. When I was unable to find the binoculars I went back outside, a few minutes or so probably had passed. Once back outside I noticed that the positioning of the object now looked different to me, also the light did not seem quite as bright. I continued watching the object but I could now tell that the object was moving back in the direction which it had originally come from {northwesterly}.It just seems awfully odd to me that something could or would sit in one position in the sky without any movement for such an extended length of time, my estimate being close to 30 minutes long!
