very bright light (white/purple) at the center of object and one smaller illuminating light on each side of the center light.

At the time of this incident, I was only 14 years of age. Still, to this day I am fully aware of what myself and four friends had seen. It was a warm, clear summer nigh's sky, no clouds or haze. My friends and I were sitting in an area of a local cemetery, which borders a one-block area of homes, and then another cemetery. We were sitting approximately 100 yards behind the cemetery fence at the entrance to a Family Mausoleum when I noticed a slowly moving, (almost hovering) object which appeared at what seemed to be directly over the fence of the other cemetery. At first I thought the object was a helicopter slowly moving from right to left along the approximate fence area of the adjacent cemetery. However, I then realized that there were no flashing (strobe) lights, nor was they're any sound at all. Although, there was a very bright light (white/purple) at the center of object and one smaller illuminating light on each side of the center light. (At this time, no shape could be determined) We, at this time, moved to the fence area of the cemetery in which we were sitting. By this time the object had moved slowly to about half way down the adjacent cemetery fence. We all then realized that this was not a known aircraft of any sort. The object was no more than 500 feet away from us at an approximate altitude of 75 feet in the air. This was most apparent from the scaling of the homes that were between the cemetery, which we were in, and the cemetery fence, which the object was apparently following, and the tree line of the adjacent cemetery. It was at this time I could just make out an outline of the object. (The lights were so bright, that it was most difficult to see thru them). I also realized that there was still no sound whatsoever. At this time, we all "jumped" the cemetery fence and ran as fast as possible around the end of the Block, (approximately 10 seconds) so that we could get even closer, if not under the object. When we arrived, it was gone! I visually searched the Sky and realized that there was nothing in sight, not even a distant airplane; the entire sky was void of craft. Yet, it was clear starry night! I have created a digital rendering of what myself and my friends had seen that night which gives a good scale to go by. A fist would have covered the object and one half at arms length when first viewed. Sincerely, ((name deleted))
