Huge, motionless craft hovers silently above an army base

It was approximately 1:30 am on a clear summer night and my boyfriend was driving me home. We took the usual route, which is right alongside an army base which is surrounded by a thick border of trees. We were on the right side of the street and the army base and trees were to my right. I was looking up at the sky through my (passengers) window as we drove along and out of nowhere, I spot a huge disc-shaped object. It was hovering, motionless in the field of the army base at just the right angle and height above the trees for me to get a good look at it. The top portion was dome shaped and appeared slightly lighter in colour than the bottom and did not have any lights on it's surface. The lower portion of the object was shaped like a saucer but had some thickness to it. It was dark in colour and the flat bottom was encircled with red and pale yellow lights at it's edge. There was a long, rectangular ramp extended from the bottom part and I could see a cable or something cable-like, holding this ramp in place. The ramp was not in contact with anything else in the sky, it was just there and the light inside the object was light grey, almost misty. I started to yell "what the f*ck is that?!!!" and kept telling him to look and asking him if he seen it too. I kept repeating "it's in the sky, above the trees!" and he tried to lean over to see it, but the roof of the car was obstructing his line of sight. I was too excited to think of getting him to pull over, even though the streets were almost empty and we probably could have done so safely. For the next few seconds, I just watched this huge, silent object hover in the sky, and as we kept driving, I lost sight of it. I told ((name deleted)) to turn pull a u-turn and go back, so that he could see it. But by the time we got to the other side of the road and retraced our path, it was gone.
