UFO with opend bay doors on the bottom of it.

I was outside on my back porch at 2300 hours looking at the moon with my telescope. There was some overcast around the moon. It was clear over the rest of the sky. I sat down to wait for the clouds to move from around the moon. I saw a bright light coming out of the southwest toward my house. There were lights flashing. No noise. I would venture to say it was about 5000 ft up and coming down toward my house. It is turning to a more direct east path and crossed right over my head. I was filming it and taking pics of it with my cell phone. The main craft was elongated rectangle with no wings. It had bright lights at the front and back of it. There were little orbs of light flying around it. The large craft opend up bays doors on the bottom of the craft. It was a very bright light coming out of the bay area but, I could see pipes and structures, beams of light flying around inside of it too. As it passed by me I at first it looked like tail lights on the back of it but, I realized it was different colored orbs floating on the back of the craft. It was not going to fast about 50 or 60 Mile an hour is my guess.
