I got a real close look...

My sons(2) and three frinds called me outside to our deck to observe a strange light moving around in the sky about a 1000 yards from our home. Upon seeing the light(s), it appeared to be a plane w/landing lights on hovering avove a hill. After watching it for a minute or so with no sound I grabbed a camera. The craft slowly came our way very slowly but still no noise. I snapped photos(not developed as of this writing) as it came towards us at about 200 feet in the air. As it passed very slowly over the house I could hear no sound. It was shapped like a large wing with white lights eluminating the bottom. The bottom was not smooth but had a lot of structure. As it came towards me it had two big white lights close together pointing forward and also blue, red and white lights. Moved slow out of sight.
