Object in the skys, 1963 or 65?

This happened back in the 60's so the date might not be exact. I do know it was sometime between 63 to 65. I was just a kid actually and it was quite a long time ago, so my memory of the event might exact. For this reason I am only going to post what I know for sure.

I was woke up by my Aunt screaming her bloody head off, the first thing I saw was a blue light flashing in the window. When I got out of bed and went to the window I saw a saucer hovering about fifty feet off the ground, and about a eighty yards away. It had lights around its center and several portholes. I could see the interior of the craft but with no real detail. My sister said she saw a man, but I never saw anything in the windows. The craft was smooth, with no visible breaks in its surface, it had no antenna, no landing gear, no intakes, or exhaust ports. The only activity was in the lights around the center of the craft. After a while the craft moved off to the north west at about a forty five degree angle. As for how fast it was moving I am not sure. When it first started to move it seemed slow, but then picked up speed quickly. I would like to give more information, but after all this time I guess anything else would be speculation on my part. I would like to hear from anyone else that saw anything or remembers anything during that time frame.
