large rectangular object seen in the night sky

Back in 2001 I was living in Harrogate North Yorkshire I was trying to get some sleep after a exhausting day at work when I happened to look strait up at the night sky as it was a clear and crisp night, then all of a sudden an unidentified oblong shaped silhouetted object was seen in the night sky that blocked out the stars as it passed over head it did not make any sounds but had at least 4-5 oblong brightly lit lights on its base that changed in brightness from dazzling to dim almost orange coloured lights the object was larger then 2 semi detached houses and hung in the sky for at least 30 minutes to a hour whilst slowly moving towards the Knesborough area of Harrogate.

Their was a slight haze or mist or aura at the base of the object around the edges of the object/craft I at first was amazed by the object but bearing in mind this was only 4 days after the September 11Th attack in New York my next emotion was one of fear, I only wish I had snapped off a picture or image of the object because the next day when I reported it no one would believe me & all my friends who I was lodging with could say I was dreaming although I know I was wide awake and I am not crazy and I also know that I was experiencing missing time as a result of the traumatic experience I even had vivid flash backs for at least a month afterwards I use to be a sceptic about the subject of UFOs but now have an open mind when it comes to sightings at the time of the sighting their was a electrical/magnetic effects such as street lighting dimming and their was an electrical static charge in the air or atmosphere their was also I could hear the sound of dogs barking or howling ! at the time of this event although I can't be absolutely sure if they were responding to the object or the full moon as it was a clear crisp night.
