NO sound, black out window in cockpit flashing square lights around it

I was 14 yrs old i was fishing at a pond out in the county with a friend, right above the treetops around the pond i saw an oval shaped object that was very big it was about the size of a 727 plane at that period of time, it had square lights around it blinking orange and white going around from one to the other it was right over tree tops which was no higher than 150 feet high it was going around in circles like it was looking for something it was black in color it had a cockpit that was slanted with blacked out windows no other windows on it it finally flew along the side of the pond that i was fishing on my friend was across the pond but it few on my side it was lower when it came over me had dropped down to around 75 to 100 ft it did not stop it had no noise very quiet it flew very slow over me the lifted up and turned back toward where i first seen it and lifted off going up but did not go up fast like it knew it was not being tracked,I wonder many t! imes after thinking about it was those lights Radar defectors for that period of time, the odd thing about this is i did not remember this until 2019 for some reason right after it happened in 1972 i remember that because i was 14 yrs old i mean within a few hrs after seeing this i had forgot about it all these years like something had wiped my memory i do remember there was something about those lights flashing around it that i could not take my eyes off of it, it was not round like you see pics of it was oval shaped, it was like a plane but had no wings.
