Changing shape visited, and hovered over suburban area.

My friend and I were sitting on my porch late at night. It was summer and it was pretty hot outside considering it was a little before or after midnight. My house is in a populated suburban area on the end of the neighborhood, making it on the road. Diagonal, but in plain view from my porch, is an orchard. Its one of those random things where houses were just built around. We were eating popcicles looking over there and all the sudden I was overcome with emotion as I saw a glowing white, tripod like figure raise out of the orchard. I knew my friend was looking at it to because she was silent. If you have seen Zenon, the Disney movie, the "aliens" in that movie is what resembled what we saw. The only difference was it was brighter and a little smaller. It proceeded to rise about 12 feet and hover for 3 or 4 seconds. It than began to spin rapidly, turn in to a ball/disk thing and stop. It was so surreal and strange because it looked like those fake ones in movies. A circle with blinking red and blue lights on the side. It kept changing color for about 7 or 8 seconds, shot down a yellow beam of light, sucked it back up, than zoomed across my neighborhood and out of sight. It moved faster than ANYTHING in the air I have ever seen move. When it was behind the trees we heard an almost explosion and ran in the house. We both swear to this story and can each give you the exact same story. It is very strange but, when we talk about it, we get kind of emotional. I never believed in these things but now, i KNOW they are real. I know what we saw and it was real. I still to this day get funny when I see anything moving in the sky at a fast speed. To witness something like that changes the way you look at things completely and forever!
