Large metalic object hovering 30-50ft off the ground,short beam coming down to ground.

My friend and I were riding our bikes in North Merrick NY on October 1st 2008 at about 1:00 AM. It was a quiet day with lots of clouds, it rained later that day. We were just riding around and we noticed a large metallic disk with a rounded top just hovering.

There was no sound emitted from the object. We saw it for about 5 seconds and then at gold beam shot down from the bottom of the object and then the object shot off as fast as I’ve ever seen anything go. It was like it disappeared completely in a flash. We never saw it again and we called 2 of our other friends to look for things like broken twigs or burned things. We took 4 cell phone pictures of the area were it was seen which we can not upload.
