If little green men did plunge a UFO into Bantam Lake under the cover of darkness two weeks ago, they might be interested to know that there’s little pressure to speed up whatever they’re planning—or if some glowing green whale-sized object did fall into the lake as reported, and it is a meteorite as suspected, it will likely remain undisturbed for a very long time.
And the mystery surrounding an incident that got international attention may remain just that—a mystery.
Despite Connecticut officials and legislators being lobbied by at least one former member of a lake protection group to investigate, and despite a private group’s vow to crack the case, little follow-up appears to be taking place.
“To the best of my knowledge, there are not any ongoing efforts to retrieve whatever it was, and my hope is that this summer scuba divers will take an active interest in trying to solve this mystery,” said State Sen. Andrew Roraback (R-Goshen), who is seeking the GOP nomination to run in the Fifth Congressional District. “We have added this to the list of life’s unanswered questions.”
The buzz for the last couple of weeks has been about a glowing green object that fell into Bantam Lake around 2 a.m. April 10. In contrast to the magnitude of the buzz—“Is there a UFO in Connecticut?” the Daily Mail in England asked—what is known about the incident is spare.
An unidentified motorist who was near Bantam Lake called State Police at the Troop L barracks in Litchfield to report seeing the green, whale-sized object fall into the lake.
Such a report doesn’t necessarily suggest credibility—given that the motorist didn’t stick around and apparently didn’t call back—but an on-duty State Police trooper some 10 miles away in Warren also called the barracks to report seeing a large object fall from the sky over Bantam or Morris.
Morris firefighters were dispatched, along with firefighters from Bantam, and made several passes up and down the lake in a boat but didn’t find anything. Morris Fire Chief Joel Skilton said he was inclined to believe that it was a meteorite, given that the National Weather Service had documented a meteor shower in the area that night.
In the wake of reports about the incident, the Bantam Lake Protective Association’s former president, Robert LaBonne, sent an e-mail to Mr. Roraback and State Rep. Craig Miner (R-Litchfield), telling the legislators he had received e-mails from as far away as Florida.
