Strange noisy craft in North Pole

I was in my parent's living room getting ready to watch a movie. I went to shut to curtains (the view looks out at the trees that partially block the main street) when I heard a strange sound. It almost sounded like a fire engine or a police siren, but the sound seemed all wrong.

It was like there was extra noise and a few different pitches. So I looked to see what it was. The noise got louder and finally there was a thing speeding down the road, only it wasn't touching the ground. The trees between the house and the road were birch and spruce, so I could kind of see what the thing was.

It was very large, very tall - my guess is between 40'-50' in height. It had white/yellow and red lights. It was moving extremely fast...close to 80 or 90 mph.

The road that my parents live off of, Peede Rd, is a mile long. Vincent Ct, the road my parents live on, is very close to the end of Peede Rd. You can't take the corner too fast because it's sharp. I timed the time that it takes for me to run out to Peede. It took 27 seconds.

After seeing this thing zoom by, I ran out to Peede Rd. I figured that it was a fire truck since it had been so large, but when I got out to the road I saw nothing. There were no vehicles on the road, no people, nothing.
