The latest news from the Hancock News Service - odd news fair and balanced!

Authorities in northwestern Connecticut say they didn't find anything after a state trooper and another person reported a large object falling out of the sky in Litchfield. A person driving in Litchfield at about 2 a.m. Tuesday reported that a green, glowing object the size of a whale fell from the sky and crashed into a local lake. At about the same time, a state trooper called dispatchers to report that something fell out of the sky. Morris firefighters made several passes up and down the lake in a boat looking for a possible plane crash, but didn't find any debris. Authorities called off the search, leaving the mystery unsolved.
