Gun metal black crescent with 6 window-glowing lights

It was two days before Thanksgiving and I was returning home for the holidays. My mother was driving and I was sitting behind the passenger seat which was empty. My little brother was sitting behind the driver's seat. We were on the interstate 90 in New York state and we driving home, which was 3 hours away driving east towards Albany, NY. Although it was around the fall, it was still day light outside. The sun was lower in the sky but not near the horizon yet.

When sitting in my seat, I was looking out the rear passenger window. Then I decided to turn around in my seat and look out the back window. When I looked out the back window I saw what looked like to be a big fancy building. At least that was my first perception. But when I looked at the bottom of it, I noticed it was hovering right over this farm area on the I-90 in the air. It was at the height of a tall building that you would see in New York City. This object was about 3/4 of a football field away from me while I was in the car.

It was a crescent-shaped object that was the width of about 20 airplanes. When you see airplanes in the sky they look small. Now imagine 20 airplanes flying wing tip to wing tip. It was that wide, so wide that I could look under it and count the other three lights that were on the other side of this craft. It was gun metal black and six curved lights on it. They lights almost looked like windows but there was a glow in the air surrounding these window-looking lights. There was also a "black rectangular shaped intricate engine-y object" that connected to the middle of the inside of this black metal looking crescent. The middle of this rectangle had a curved gate the bordered around the middle of it.

I sat there and watched this from the back window and the back driver side window. When I was watching this it just disappeared out of the blue. It just blinked out the sky, it did not leave any trail, nothing. I did not see it appear, just seen it disappear. It was too huge to just up and disappear like that.

I remember talking to a math professor at my school about my sighting and he said that maybe it could have been a mirage but that mirages were not common in that weather condition during Autumn in November. That day it was cold, no rain, just a little windy Autumn day. The sky was a little gloomy, not sunny at all but not dark outside either.

I know I saw an object, I was freaked out and at first I didn't want to believe what I had seen. When it disappeared, I just turned around in my seat and sat there silent for 5 minutes in shock. When I turned back around to check to see if I could see it again, it was gone. When I got home, I took notes in my iPod about what I had seen and came to realization about it.
