Shape: Flash
Duration:about 3 minutes
Bright craft slowly came toward me from over the neighbor's house (thought it was a star at first)

I couldn't sleep for a little bit so I went out to our living room. One of our cats was in the window so I sat in the chair next to her and petted her for a minute when I noticed what I thought was a bright star or planet in the distance, above our neighbor's house, that I hadn't seen before. Intrigued by how bright it was, I looked closer then noticed it was coming closer. Then I made out a row of bright yellow lights on top with a red light on the bottom right corner and a blue light on the bottom left corner. I opened the window so I could hear what type of noise was coming from this flying craft, but didn't hear anything, but my other cat jumped up in the window and growled. It just got closer and closer until it was finally up overhead and going over me quite a distance above me (between airplane level and where a helicopter would be if it were looking for someone). It was then I heard a sound that didn't sound anything like an airplane or helicopter, but it was a familiar low-pitched sound almost like a pod in StarWars (kind of sounded like it was under water almost).
