Connecticut - Madison, 08-27-10

My wife and I, along with another couple and the children were setting up our campsite at the Hammonasset State Park in Madison, CT. My wife said to everyone, "Look at that!"

We all turned to the southeast and witnessed a diamond-shaped object pulsating red and orange moving slowly to the northeast, I was able to take a compass bearing on the object of 150*. I referenced the object with two pine trees at a range of approximately 100m across a flat open field.

The object was situated at an elevation equivalent to two horizontal finger widths above the two pine trees. The object steadily moved to a bearing of 120* paused for approximately 2 seconds, and then rapidly ascended to the east at a high angle of ascent and disappeared out of site.

The weather was as follows: Skies-clear with abundant stars visible and the moon was a waning gibbous providing significant lighting, enough so that I would expect an exhaust / vapor trail to be visible. Winds were calm, with temp about 60*F, humidity-low.

The object made no noise, there was no trail of exhaust/vapor visible. I did not notice any aircraft in the area at the time of the sighting. I called the NUFORC hotline to report shortly after the incident occurred. As we were in the process of setting up camp a camera was not readily accessible and I did not want to take my eyes off of the object.

My exact location at the time of the incident was 41* 16'21.7N 72* 35'51.1W.
