I was wakened with a bright light shining on the overhang of the roof of the townhouse next to me. I thought about it and couldn't figure why such a light would come from that area as it was an area facing northerly. So I got up and looked. There was no sunlight at that hour, besides it was coming from the wrong direction. The UFO light was in the ESE, I believe.

Couldn't tell shape of craft because of lights it was emitting. It looked like a white blob as if moon in fog, but it was standing still. However, when got out binoculars it had three squares straight in front emitting bright lights as if from a panel. There were very strong, bright beams coming from each side. It stayed still. The crescent moon passed my view and moved past me as if in front and below the object. I got up because the light beam coming between slats in my partially opened blind hit me and woke me up. Coming from such an unusal area (edge of neighbors roof facing north)I couldn't figure it out so got up and viewed in a ESE angle from me.

I went back to bed and got up several minutes later and it was gone. It seemed as if it were trying to attract attention by being so bright and still.
