Seriously Close Encounter!!!!!!

Myself and my two roommates were sitting on our front porch, when I saw what i thought was a star at first. It started swaying back and forth from side to side slowly. As it got closer to the ground it quit swaying, and my roommates noticed what ever it was flying directly towards us from straight ahead of us but up in the sky. As it got close enough for us to hear the flying craft, we could hear a high pitch turbine engine sound radiating from the craft that came to a complete stop above my neighbors house in the middle of the night. My roommates and I all stood and I asked if they saw that thing too. They said yes. The craft was obviously as interested in us as we were of it. I looked around at my other neighbors houses to see if anybody was coming out to see what this loud noise was coming from this craft now hovering motionless above my neighbors house. Nobody came out. We all three started walking to our driveway and out to the street. As we did that ,th! e craft became silent and I could not hear any noise. We all three kept our eyes glued to the mysterious craft that just floated down from the dark sky. As we walked towards the street , the craft came towards us but parallel so that we didn't end up directly underneath it when we met in the middle of the street. The craft then hovered silently about 15 feet above us and ten feet away so weren't directly underneath it. We all three staired at the hovering craft for what seems like a long time and I felt tired, but only about 13 min passed. All three of us seemed to be in a trance like state staring at the craft as it started to float silently away from us down our street at the same altitude it was checking us out at. Whoever was piloting the craft that was about half as big as my neighbors house, that it first hovered over, was just as curious about us as we were about this craft. We watched it float away down our street after what felt like hours, but almost no time had! passed. The craft made it about 3/4 of the way down the street and then made a degree of a turn over 90° smooth fluidly and effortlessly back towards where it originally flew down from up with all the stars. It flew as effortlessly and slow going back up that it did coming down. Except it flew in more of a straight pattern going back up. When it was to small to distinguish the craft from a star I blinked and looked around my street ,sighing when I realized nobody was watching us. Then I noticed my roommates were still in a trance staring at the sky in the middle of our street at 2:30 in the morning. Then I said hey guys let's get out of the street before someone thinks we're crazy or something. The craft did not have bright lights emanating from the bottom, but it did have some lights flashing colors in the fusilage area that sat in the middle of the saucer craft. I have never seen or experienced this kind of thing before or after in my entire life. As the craft was flying away slowly like it didn't have a care in the world, I thought to myself how insignificant we really are and those things can do what they want and we probly can't stop them. When then craft was observing us close I could have hit it with a rock it was so close. The air had a strange smell also while it was close.
