Moderate Sized UFO Almost Hits My House (Updated - Wrong Info Given Originally)

I previously submitted a form a year ago, but you placed the wrong information in your online database. This is the full and correct information.

It was mid August 2000 when my sister and I were looking out my bedroom window during the night, estimated 10:30pm USA eastern time. We watched as a form of lights appeared a few miles out from our view coming from the east. There is an airport in that direction, Stewart International Airport. As it got closer the aircraft was not like a plane. It had more lights and wasn't moving as fast as an airplane does. It started to fly over my house directly and made an extremely loud rumbling noise. The aircraft was octagon shaped and all black. It had a light on each side of it and was moving at about 15 to 20 MPH. It was very low to the ground for an airplane. My house is 40 feet tall plus a TV antenna making a total of 55 feet. The craft was a few feet higher and we ran to the back window to watch it continue on but it disappeared before we could watch it fly over my backyard. We believe it blasted away before we could see it come over the house fully. The craft was 30 feet in diameter (estimated).
