hovering craft at tree top level at night craft lit up from inside w/ 4 aliens clearly visible 3 short 1 tall all gray type

I was with a friend (both of us about age 9) in a rural neighborhood playing it had fallen dark and we were on our way in to his house and just before we got to the door steeps we stopped in our tracks and looked up and saw a craft perfectly still and completely silent at tree top level.

There were 3 short grays lined up in a window with one tall gray standing in the back of them all looking down at us.

The craft was all lit up from the inside bright white light with no visible source.

As we looked at this scene with amazement for about a min or so My friend ran off into the direction of the house.I never saw him make it to the house just shot of faded out of my sight.

I continued to look at this scene for about another 3 or 4 min and kept thinking WOW, and thought I needed to share this.

I turned to my left and started to move/run towards the house. This was my last memory of the encounter and did not recall anything until years latter, but I now recall, as described very clearly.

It has always left me with many questions.
