All I could think was "OH ((deleted))!!"

I saw a single craft illuminated too bright to be a commercial plane, nowhere near an airport. It started from the ground, and at first it appeared to be on fire, taking off from the ground. As it drew in, I was lucky enough to get a close look, as it was not very loud-at least not sonic. It was tilted to my right as it flew above me and looked like an antenna for a cellular tower leading down to a spherical "traditional" saucer shape, only from the tip of the antenna(lights equipped), there were what appeared to be cables attatched at various points of the saucer, and then from(as though pierced by the antenna) the saucer to the tail end. As it faded off into the distance, I was sure I had never seen anything like it.
