Friend and I observed one disc-shaped, dark metallic object that had three separate lights fixed by equal distance underneath unknown aerial object. Object first sighted coming out of the east, then slowly descended into a large wooded area where we could see lights between trees. When object came overhead it was about 500' to 750' above ground. Glow of underneath lights (red, green,and white) highlited outline of object.We first observed object after exiting my home. After passing overhead to settle/land in woods nearby (300-400 yards west of home). Lights observed shining inside tree-line. We stood out in vacant field watching this yellow to white glow when we then noticed smaller twinkling white lights zig-zagging in and outside of the treeline. We ran back towards home when we observed strange person floating near creek, Time noted at home arrival- 7:30PM. Light source in treeline was seen for almost 2 weeks. (Every night I'd strangly be drawn down to watch that light).
