floating object and strange lights in the sky.

I work night shift at the Clarian Arnett Hospital as a nursing assistant. I was on my way back from getting food on my break around 2:10 am, and saw a floating object directly over the intersection in front of the hospital. It was just over the traffic lights. I stopped (at a green light) to see what it was but cannot wrap my head around what I saw.

It was grayish blue, there were no streetlights just car headlights, it is very dark around the hospital, and I estimate it as being the size of a large dog. To me it looked like some sort of creature, floating silently and slowly straight up. No drifting or blowing in the wind. It had what looked like a very large head with the rest of the body which did appear to have 4 appendiges about the same size as the head, and it appeared to be almost upside down. it didnt move, just floated up as if being lifted from the sky. I turned around and went back, and it was gone.

I parked in the back of the hospital parking lot and a man with a little boy were walking out to the road pointing and looking where the object had been. I walked up to him and asked if they saw it too and if they knew what it was. He said that he did, he was able to see it from up close to the hospital. But he didn’t know what it was either. It was gone. I don’t know hoe it could have disappeared so fast or whether anyone else in the cars saw it.

Looking out the windows that night I noticed the moon was large, and there was a very large very bright light that stayed in the same proximity to the moon the entire night. And could see many tiny and very far away green lights appearing and disappearing and streaking the sky above. 2 of the RN’s I work with also witnessed this. The next 2 nights I’ve seen nothing and the moon is gone. I am baffled and terrified.
