Duration:1 minute
This was a lit up object moving slowly, then jumping quickly and hovering above the woods and homes of Connecticut.

We were driving along a windy, suburban Connecticut road when we saw what we thought was a jetliner high in the sky. There is an airport nearby, about 6 miles from where we saw this object. It turned around in the sky and was heading towards us, shining a bright light towards the ground. I turned to look at everyone elses speechless faces, looked back and it was within 100 yards from us above the treetops hovering near large colonial homes going down beyond the treetops where there is a golf course. It looked like a large minivan or ambulance without wheels or wings, with an ambulance-like door on the back of the object. It looked as if the door was lit-up, or glowing. It was absolutely not a helocopter or an airplane, because we rolled down our windows and heard nothing.
