A friend and I saw a round domed object metallic in appearance and rather large with lights located around the bottom edges and top.

While driving down Flatlands in Brooklyn I noticed an object hovering straight ahead, normally I would not have paid a flying object any mind because we see helicopters and planes all the time, however this object was noticable because of its shape, it was round with what I can only describe as a domed top, furthermore this object was not high up like an airplane but only several stories it was low enough that details could be made out. It had a metallic appearance with lights located around the bottom along the edge, these lights were between purple and blue in color and there was also a pulsating yellowish light located between the round bottom of the craft and its round domed top. I looked at it for several seconds trying to make out what I was seeing before I tapped my boyfriend and said do you see that, I should mention that I have never believed in aliens, or bigfoot or anything of the sort I am a graduate student majoring in forensic science and have always been taught there is an explanation for everything, he looked up got quiet for a few seconds and said "oh my god, what the hell is that." We continued to drive north and the craft simply hovered there, the night was clear and silent and we both noticed that whatever it was it emitted no noise, we continued driving and the object began to travel north but at a slow pace. My boyfriend began to feel uneasy about this round object which was most definitely not a plane or a helicopter or any other flying object either of us had ever seen before and turned right, at this point we were traveling east but were still looking back at the odject, maybe 4-5 minutes had passed by this point. Now we had to look back and to the left to keep the object in focus, at this point the object began to tavel in our direction rather rapidly however it was now slightly tilted with the bottom turned toward us, the closer it got the larger it appeared and the more detail we could make out (at this point the object was only about 2 blocks from us,) we co! uld not understand how those around us could not see this, it was so close, but the drivers around us did not appear to be looking in the direction of this craft which could easily be seen by looking through the back seat window on the driver's side but rather straight ahead. At this point the craft was traveling behind a set of buildings, once again I commented on how low it was, it wasn't flying over the buildings but behind them so that its view would be blocked for about half a second everytime it went behind a building,( the buildings were apartments I estimate to be about 15-20 stories high)the object suddenly took off in the opposite direction and we lost sight of it.
