Blue outlined jellyfish-like craft, transparent center at first, then pulsing yellow, then pulsing purple

The night before my 12th birthday in April 2007, I was having trouble sleeping. I was young, excited about the following day's events.

Around 11 I finally drifted asleep, only to be woken up a few hours later by a bright, pale-blue glow coming through the blinds of the window beside my bed. Being a child, I figured it was the blue sky of morning.

I stood and pulled my blinds up as I did every morning. When I did I was greeted not by the sky I'd been expecting, but by the dark night sky. I looked around for the source of the light, and not finding it, I went to get a glass of water. I figured I'd imagined it.

When I came back to bed the light was back, and this time I could see the source. There was a large, saucer-shaped craft in the sky above the forest behind my house. It looked almost transparent in the center, and glowed blue around the edges, looking almost jellyfish-like.

I stared for a few minutes, stupefied. As I watched, the center pulsed yellow and! came closer to my window. I tapped the glass, I don't recall why, but when I did it pulsed purple very quickly five times and took off.

I dove into my bed and tightened the covers around me, something about the craft filled my chest with cold fear
