Duration:2-4 minute
Black triangle craft with 8 - 10 yellowish-white lights on side/red underbelly lights/quietly hums past window.

My girlfriend and I were about to lay down to go to sleep when she pointed out a craft in the distance. She said it was sitting still until I looked out the window. The craft moved very slowly going toward the East, somewhat hiding in the tree lines. It then made a very smooth turn, heading toward the West this time, and came back into our view.

The craft then very slowly hovered right past our window, there was probably 8 to 10 yellowish-white lights on the side we could see, and at least two red lights on the belly of the craft. This thing was literally at the height of the power lines, made virtually no sound until it was passing right next to the house. It made a very faint humming sound - we live really close to an airport so we're pretty familiar with airplane sounds and their landing lights.

It was a black triangle shape from what we could make out. It was insane how close we were to this thing. You could've probably pegged this thing with a rock, it was flying so low. And at the speed this thing hovered, any other aircraft would've definitely been stalling out. I didn't take any pictures because my camera on my phone has awful quality.

We plan to watch out the window again tonight, just in case we see anything. I plan on taking pictures and/or video this time, if anything happens. I've seen two other ufo's when I was younger, but this one was definitely the closest encounter I've had.
