Shape: Unknown
Duration: 1 hour
Characteristics: The object made a sound
Large jet like sound hovering in the neighborhood for an hour

Just after midnight, I heard loud sound like low flying jet approaching. It got louder, but then it did not pass as jet sounds usually do. Then it stayed in the area, likely within a mile of my house near Bradford college. It seemed to stay mostly in the same spot, but occasionally sound got louder or quieter, and sound direction changed about 10 to 20 degrees (on a compass). It was so loud my wife heard it with all the windows closed and Air conditioner on. I don't know why more people did not wake up. I couldn't see anything, although it was a little cloudy on the horizon. When I went outside I thought I could feel the turbulence in the air. Sometimes the turbine sound was joined by a high pitched whirr. But the turbine sound was a much lower frequency than that of large passenger jets, which made me think it had to be a very very large turbine. The sounds lasted for about 30 minutes, then went away, then came back just as loud around 1am for another 10 minutes or so.
