Duration:5-10 minutes
Three of us in our home heard a deep humming sound; two of us went outside to investigate and saw red/orange strobe lights.

My daughter and I were upstairs in separate rooms when we heard a deep humming sound. The sound continued for a few minutes. I was at my desk with my back to the east window, and my back began to feel the vibrations of the hum.

My daughter, also alone in her room at her desk, heard the same thing and asked me about it. She thought it sounded like a synthesizer. I wondered if my other daughter was downstairs using the cake mixer, but, in the past, the cake mixer never sounded like that, nor did the sound carry upstairs.

We decided to get our video recorder and go outside. That is when we saw a red flashing light. It flashed like a strobe light. I knew it wasn't a helicopter or a small airplane, nor a commercial jet. Each time the red light flashed, red and orange lights beneath the object rotated in strobe-like fashion. The only sound was a very deep hum.

It continued at a north at a normal speed. For some time we could hear the hum.

I drew the craft immediately once we returned inside. What I drew looks more like a flying saucer.
