Flying Object came from the north heading south

I took a Garbage bag to the alley when comming back I happend to be looking upward and saw an object comming toward me . It was very low and getting larger fast. It was about 500-800 ft a.g.l. moving from north to south at a very constant speed and heading. as it passed over me I could clearly see three cylinder shaped lights going into the craft with the light being very dull yellowish color. Also as it went over the stars disappered behind it, giving me an outline of its shape. This thing did not make a sound and it did not have any navigation lights. I estimate the size of the object being the same size as a four engine airliner. What really buged me was even if the engines were shut down it was close enough that I should have heard the air rushing around its frame. It went out of sight after about 10-15 seconds and the only thing I could do was verify the time it happend, 11:00 p.m.
