Shape: Oval
Duration:1 minute
Large circular object stationary with very large white lights around it, more lights underneath & above the circular lights.

I was driving on the Taconic State Parkway North at approx. 11:20pm. I was in an elevated area where the road winds between hills, and I saw what I thought was a low flying plane. There's an airport in the area and we see the low flying planes landing all the time. When I rounded the curve in the road, the object was stationary up on top of the hill with very large white lights in a circle around the object. Every other light would dim as the others would brighten. There were lights underneath the object, and a few above the circle of blinking lights. It was about the size of 3 houses. I realized this was not an airplane being stationary and circular. I was alone, and too frightened to stop, and it was too close for comfort. I sped away. Returned the next day for an explanation - Just trees up on the hill.
