Saucer flew over house in Houston

It was on a pleasant night,and my windows facing the west were open. Intercontinental Airport had opened the year before and I was very familiar with the landing routes of the airplanes.. I was looking at the few stars I was able to see when I saw a very bright "star" APPROACHING from the west. It grew larger by the minute with lights becoming visible all around the structure. I remember that they were green and red and I seem to remember an amber light on the bottom of the structure. It was a silverish saucer-shaped craft, moving at an unbelievably slow pace, no more than a mile or two an hour with absolutely no sound at all! As it was almost directly overhead of our house, I jumped up and woke my younger sister, practically ripping her out of the bed, dragging her to the window so that she would also see it. She was groggy but amazed. I jumped up from the floor by the window and ran down the hall and out the back door. I stood on the back door step and watched it maintain its slow pace overhead, heading due east, directly in the path of JFK Blvd and the FAA!! As it slowly proceeded that way, I ran back inside to the telephone to see if I could get the number to the FAA so that they could witness this also. I was so nervous that I dropped the phone and my father got up. I tried to get him to go outside to see if it was still visible, but he sent me to bed. This has stuck with me all my life.. I will never forget it. I dont know how long I was outside observing it, but it was a huge saucer, perhaps 125 ft across with maybe an altitude of less than 200ft. My sister for years had denied seeing it, but now we discuss it openly as she has seen unusual things in Mississippi where she now lives..
