flying object hovered then began to glide across the sky without any noise

My friend Sanjeevi saw an unusual single white light hovering in the sky in south Oakland perhaps further south of it. We were standing on his front porch looking out smoking a cigarette looking at Oakland from his house. At first I thought it was a radio tower or a building that we had never saw. But the light remained motionless for a couple minutes.

Then it began to slowly rise and glide through the sky. Then it began to turn and come our way. At that time I thought it was a helicopter because the shape was elongated from the side view with a white light near the front and a red flashing light near the back of the object.

Then it made its way closer to use and I saw what appeared to be the underside of the rectangular oval object and there were two white lights in towards the middle of the object and four red lights symmetrically aligned on the edges of it.

The saucer at that point was no more than a couple hundred feet away from us and in the air gliding without making any noise what so ever.

We sprinted down the street to follow where it was going but the terrain eventually made it impossible to see where it was going.
