2,500 (foot?)) long cigar shaped object hovered over a hill for about 20-minutes.

Hovered for about 20 minutes over a hill. Two rows of green windows with movement within the windows. Reported to a Wahashington DC address upon the advice of the tower at Randiolph AFB. Received and answer about one month later thanking me for the observation. Viewed a very bright light that lit up the hill as if were noon. Took off without a sense of acceleration at an extremely high speed after hovering for about 20 minutes. Made no sound. Mnay other details were reported in my 5-page letter to the address in Washington DC. ((initials deleted))
