I watched a ufo cruise by my house at 21:00 at low altitudes, noiselessly with ferriswheel lights wit a strangesaucer shape.

It was approx. 8:45-9:00 P.M. It was a cloudy night with rain falling sporadically, I was letting my cat out to do her thing when I noticed a Saucer shaped vehicle moving very slowly with no noise whatsoever. It was approx. at a 200 ft. altitude level and it was close enough that I could tell it to be about the size of an 18 wheeler truck. If you put your arm out and stuck your thumb out horizontal it would be the size of your thumb from nail to knuckle. My best guess is that it was about 300 yrds out. I was looking west from my porch, and the vehicle was traveling from north to south at approx. 5 miles per hour, coming to full stops occasionally for 1 or 2 seconds then continuing on till it disappeared from my sight. It had spinning lights red, blue, white and green it had the appearance of a circus Ferris wheel. The sighting took place within a 2-3 minute period. When it started to rain , I realised that I was standing in my front yard with nothing but my underwear and I returned to my home .
