As I was walking down my dark driveway one evening in New York I looked up and saw this huge horseshoe shaped object just above the trees. It was moving very slowly. I was able to see some lights in the craft and also outside of it. They weren't the regular colors or position one would see from an airplane. As it went over my head it made a slight humming noise.

I went upstairs to see if I could see it on the other side of the house but it wasn't there.

A few months before this I was at an observatory in Conn. to watch Haley's Comet.

I kept asking people what that star was since it didn't look familiar, but no one paid me anymind. After I went in to see the comet with the telescope I was still fasinated with this star when it started to move back and forth ever so slightly and then just took off with great speed.
