Rectangular object floating above trees.
It was around 1am & my husband was working. I heard a squeaking noise outside and looked out the window. There was a rectangular object hovering above the tallest tree in my neighbors house. It was quite close & pretty much I was frozen in my tracks. I initially thought it was a helicopter (medivac type that is rectangular). I opened up the back door quickly to get a closer look. However, it was NOT stirring up any wind – especially being so close, and it didn’t sound like a helicopter at all. It made a squeaking sound pretty much like a squeaky wheel. It was hovering completely stable unlike a helicopter remaining perfectly still. I tried calling my husband on the cell (it is what I grabbed first), but the call failed multiple times. I retreated to my bedroom where I peeked thru the blinds of a darkened room. I had closed the blinds at one point & looked out again and it was gone. I then saw & heard a “obvious” helicopter roaming around with a search light. The sound very unlike the first object I had seen, and also a different shape (smaller oval helicopter). My only regret is I didn’t grab my camera or camcorder. I was too much in shock & too frightened to even make a move past the windows.
