I had just gotten my children out of our minivan. I was holding my 2year old, and following my 5 year old. Looking ahead of the sidewalk my son was walking on I noticed that that airplane ahead was not moving. So as we walked towards it on the side walk I hyper focused on it. I quickly realized it was not an airplane, because it had five white lights across in a very slight U formation. Very bright white lights. My son and husband are always looking at the stars for UFOs, then quickly turning things into IFOs, so I excitedly showed my 5year old. He was excited, but then a little confused when he could not turn it into an IFO. We kept walking towards it, keeping constant eye contact with it. It would slightly swerve up to the right then straighten back up. Slowly moving towards us, but super close to us. I would say it was only over a couple of streets away. I could see how someone might call this a "saucer" the way it moved straight towards us, the! n swerve a little to the left this time, then straighten up again.

Then as we were about one street away from it, my son telling me, we are too close, it dims the lights. All the lights at once. Then one at a time turns the five front lights all the way off, two of the light spots leaving a green glow. The green glow reminded me of safety lights on our planes and boats. Up to this point we couldn't hear a thing. Here is the point when I thought this UFO might not be Human. It made a sound. A loud SWSHH and a quick 90 degree turn. Not an easy L turn, a quick turn.

It was close enough to us that even with its lights off I could see it was now clearly not a saucer. It was the shape simular to an N64 controller. After the quick turn it also changed the position it was in. As if I were to lay flat on my tummy in a plank, then someone lifts my head 45 degrees off the ground and my body lifts with it. Then it slowly creeped away.

I was so disappointed that my phone was not on me in the moment. As soon as I got back to my phone I quickly sketched down drawings and notes so I would not forget this event.

My guess would be that this UFO was at least as long, and wide, as the length of a school bus. Before my son realized how big it was, he tried to identify it as someone's drone. It was acting like one, in that it was slowly scoping out what was going on in our neighborhood. But it was way too big to be just a drone.
