Memory of UFO sighting in Sunbury Pennsylvania during mid 80's

The date provided is by no means exact. This incedent occured in my early teenage years which would be somewhere between 1984 and 1987. It also occured during a cold month like december thru march. I was with my Aunt and my brother. We had just parked in the visitors section of the elderly highrise building on front street, which runs beside the susquhanna river. We began walking toward the highrise when we noticed a large object (memory is to unclear to define shape) it was flying very low and moving at a unhurried pace. It did not zoom or pause in mid air it simply continued very slowly across the sky. I also remember that it was very silent, there were no load noises or roaring or humming sounds. I do remember that there were a few lights( three or four in total) which were white and were on the outside perimeter, there were no lights in it's center. The object flew directly over us. It flew so low that we were worried for a few minutes it might hit the highrise building, which is fifteen stories high. After it passed over the building it seemed to blend into the night sky and totally disapper. My Aunt who is a huge skeptic of such things went right into my grandmas building and called local athorities to see if any other such sightings had been reported or if they knew of anything that was supposed to be flying in the area. No other calls had been received and to there knowledge nothing had been noted as flying low in the area. I know that I remember thinking that there was no way the object looked like a plane or a blimp. It had been very low and not hard to determine that it was an object unlike anything we had ever seen. To this day I still find myself wondering what we saw, explained or unexplained it was indeed a unique experience.
