Oval craft with two strobing ovals that seemed to be propulsion - bottom of craft was saturated in a deep blue light

I was woken up this morning at 2:30AM by the sound of my UPS system beeping to let me know the power was out in my house. Cable, wireless phone and the hardline telephone was out as well because I tried to dial in to check email and see if there was a bad storm coming. I went downstairs to unplug the TV and stereo because I know they are usually at risk when a surge of power hits when power is restored. I also grabbed some candles. When I walked in the family room - I smelled a VERY HIGH concentration of ozone, similar to my Ionic Breeze when it's turned on after being cleaned but it was not on and had not been on all day. Looking out the back window I saw it. The object was probably 30-40deg declination directly to my west. When I finally stepped outside, there was no storm that knocked out the power - actually, there was not a single sound at all - not even crickets or passing cars. The vehicle was probably 300-600 feet up (but hard to say exactly) and moved erratically but seemed to be hovering. It would wobble to the left and right and below it were two independent blue-ultra/violet-blue strobing halos that made the bottom of the vessel glow in this eerie blue. I was petrified watching it in awe and did not get a picture of it but I certainly studied it enough to accurately describe/draw it.

Later this morning when I woke up again I had wondered if it was some kind of lucid dream but alas, there on the floor in the family room is the candle wax that I spilled while I was mesmerized by this encounter.
