Metallic UFO over Upper Manhattan

I was in the livingroom when I heard my mum call me to the kitchen. She yelled for me to come quick.

As I got there, I saw her looking out of the window and she said that there was a ufo in the sky. I thought she was mistaken, that perhaps it was a kite or she was kidding around until I reached the window which is on the 6th story bldg and saw a brass colored V shaped object floating in the southeastern sky. The thing was slowing rotating around w/o a sound.

I was shocked, not scared but intrigued. I ran to get a small telescope to see it closer. The object had a circle-like large porthole in the end part of the V. It did not look like a window and it was the same color as the brass metal. The UFO turned and rotated over and over. As it did, the V would become an L and then cigar and back again to an L and a V over and over. It was a clear sky with a few clouds and the object was just around cloud level or roughly 2,000 ft.

My mum said that they were communicating to her, saying that they were friendly. I just looked at her and disbelieved her. She said that she asked when are they coming and that they replied soon, very soon. She also said that it had a haze around it which I didnt see.

My mum actually liked the episode, I felt a little creepy but not frightened. My dad arrived and we told him to go look. He did and was fascinated also, almost amused. He kind of looked happy and he was not the type of person to smile easily.

This UFO was affecting my parents moods into being jovial I thought. We all looked silently until the craft flew out of our line of sight towards the Northeast which I didnt want it leave. I told my parents that I was 100% sure they knew we spotted them and they may have trained their visual aids on us, maybe even photographed us.

I had a strong sensation that our images were captured to be shown in their world.
