Saucer shaped aircraft levitates over witnesses and reveals it's definite shape while speeding off afterwards

Dawn had been breaking and I had been looking over to the horizon only to notice an aircraft roaming around. I believed that it was a mere helicopter in patrol but it begun to elevate and move towards our general direction.

The Lights emitted were Red and Blue, which did not flash simultaneously in accordance to the common pattern regular to military/Police patrol aircrafts.

The red lights flashed three times and then the blue light in the center flashes along with it. Then it changed to multiple red flashes and some minimal blue flashing.

I called my neighbor over to look and we immediately pause.

The Aircraft flew above us.

My neighbor and I were perplexed because it was above us and it became clear to us what it is. I would say it was a couple hundred feet or less, but then the most astonishing event occurs.

The lights emitted from the aircraft revealed its definite shape, which appeared to look like a saucer with an extruded block in the center of it.

The sides of the saucer had strips of red lights. Three of them exactly in both sides with one blue strip of light mixed with white in the center of the extruded block.

The sound of the turbulence had affected the neighborhood dogs which caused them to bark loudly.

As it sped to the other end of the street it made a sharp turn back and I immediately grabbed my ladder and I recorded the aircraft returning. From the distance the sound of the turbulence had been very loud for the distance.

Luckily I managed to record enough to approve of sighting.

My witness is my neighbor and he had been surprised as well, unfortunately the focus on my camera had been lacking, explaining the difficulty in keeping range and quality.

I apologize if the video had been shaking around, I was nervous about the situation and I was not sure how to adapt to it.

I then called the hotline and I had been advised to write a report as shown, and to attach a video along with it.
