Strage object flying over Ohio River, very large and moving slow.

On 10/06/07, my nephew and I were fishing in the Ohio River approximately 1 mile upstream of the Newburgh lock and dam. At about 6:30 pm I noticed what at 1st looked like a huge plane over the KY side of the river. What was unusual was that it look like a plane with its wings tilted at approximately 30 degrees and coming directly at us. I asked my nephew if he saw this and he confirmed that he had been watching it for a while and wasn't sure what he was looking at either. We set there for 30 minutes or longer and watched this object fly east then change course and fly north-northeast. For quite a while this object looked like it was flying toward us and tilted but then it began moving east. It had lights on both ends of it and we estimated it had to be very large, mabye a quarter mile from end to end. The lights on both ends blinked and were both red. We thought that this was 2 planes at 1st, but it was definetely 1 object. At no time was any noise noted from the object, or any plane aircraft noises heard during the siting. This was a very weird object, flying at a very slow speed and I think that it was hovering when we thought it was coming directly at us. Anyone with any info. on this would be appriciated.
