White ball shape, with grey bottom and single row of multicolor lights,decended from cloud, traveled East to West overhead.

White ball shaped object descended from a dark cloud following a wind gust. Object seemed unsteady for few moments after exiting the cloud. The object was round like a ball with nothing visible attached to it. It was white in color, with a greyish bottom. We saw one line of multi colored lights on the bottom of the object. No noise was heard. It was observed by my brother that in the grey area there were four evenley spaced holes that we assume could hold the landing gear. And there was also one square shape in the center of the bottom. My brother and I saw the ship descend from the east, and after the object steadied itself it travled west in a straight line over us. Once the object reached the clear sky we could no longer see it.
