Close encounter in Sterling near the water tower.

I cannot remember if it was summer of 98 or 99. A friend and I were walking up a street near the water tower in sterling and spotted a craft about 200-400 yards N/E. We watched as (at first) a grouping of strange lights moved towards us at a slow rate of speed. About 5 min after watching the lights we were able to make out a shape. Typical 1950's shape flying saucer. We just stood there watching this craft get closer and closer to us. Eventually we could make out what looked like actual back lit windows, nothing visible inside. It stopped about 25 yards away from us and just sat there for a couple minutes until I made the strange observation that it was not making sound. We then ran away. (Both of us think we have about 1.5 hrs missing time) I noticed 2 postings from same time frame in same area, with a familiar description. I was hoping to contact other witnesses. This sighting changed my life.
