Strange craft appeared in sky , then zoomed away

I was walking in my basement one night and looked out of my sliding glass door.There was a strange shape out right over the trees , I estimate 300 yards away.It was a fat teardrop , sort of like the craft from independance day (I saw that movie 4 months AFTER the sighting).I thought it was a helicopter at first , then opened the door and heard nothing.I had seen helicopters from that distance before and heard them , loud and clear , so I knew it was either a silent , new helicopter ,or an alien space craft.Then a blue aurora surrounded the object and 2 white lights turned on , on the sides of the craft. Then it shot off on a very odd , diagnol angle, at an INCREDIBLE speed.
