Craft which looked to by cylendrical with one moderatly bright, bluesh light on the front and a dimmer, redish light on the back flew over

I went outside at around 7:30 eastern time, 19:30 24hr and after about 5 minutes of star gazing, began to hear a low rumbling sound from the west. When I looked over i saf a craft, small, at high altitude with one moderatly bright, blueish light in front, and a smaller, dimmer redish light in back. as it flew over, most likely very high speed given the approximate altitude and duration, gave out low sounds, almost like the sounds whales make when signing, or like the sound that metal makes under high stress, like in a ship's hull, when bending. As it flew over the horizon i heard these sounds, maybe 3 or 4 times in slow succession. The night was cold (35* F.) and clear, with light whispy clouds in the SSE direction. The craft was flying ESE and I could see it from the time it came over the horizon, to the time The trees in the backround obstructed it.
