An unknown bright stationary object in the sky over Stamford, CT

On Sunday August 25th around 8:30-8:45 p.m. EST in Stamford, CT we noticed an unknown bright object in the sky. The object was not moving. It was about the size of a plane, but not of the same shape, and was “hanging” at around the same height as that at which you would normally see planes. Judging by the location of the object in relation to our house, it looked like it may have been situated above Cove Island in Stamford or in that general direction. It was difficult to decipher the actual shape, but all of us saw holes in this object through which the light was coming.

There were 4 of us at home (our family) and every one of us saw it. It is now 9:40 p.m. and we are still seeing it. My husband and son took a video of the object.
