|Silver aircraft with 3 lights, beeping noise - hovered over my house and then in front of me while watching it from the street.
I got home from work and got out of my car. I heard a strange beeping noise and started looking around. Then I saw right between my house and my neighbors house was a silver craft just hovering between both houses. It was approximately 40 feet off the ground. I couldn't believe what I was seeing and just stood there frozen.
Then it slowly, very very slowly, moved over the street where I was standing. It stopped about 20 feet in front of me and was about 30 feet up (it was slightly below the height of a street light). I stood there for about 15 seconds just looking at it in awe. It had a very smooth exterior and had 3 circular white lights underneath it shining down.
As for the placement of the lights underneath the craft, imagine a triangle with one light in each corner of the triangle and the triangle being underneath an aircraft. I hope that makes sense.
Then, I freaked out and ran inside my house and grabbed my brother. He came out and as we ran into the street, it sped off into the distance, slowed down for a few seconds and then sped off again. I could tell that it still was fairly low to the ground - probably 100 feet high.
I watched it go until it disappeared. A
s for the beeping noise that it was making, there was a beep, then a 1 second pause, then another beep, then a 1 second pause and so on. It never stopped beeping. It was so loud that I was surprised none of my other neighbors ran out into the street to see what was making the noise.
Also, the craft came from the South East and moved to the North West.
