A huge multi-lighted object hovered stationary over the eastern part of DFW airport.

I was walking my dogs at 9:45 pm local time. Heading east along the backside of my apartment complex.(This faces DFW airport which is approx 4 miles away) I walk my dogs this direction on a regular basis and am quite familiar with the flight paths of the airport. I noticed a multi-level bank of lights approx 500-1000 ft above the ground. At first I thought I must be seeing a top of a building. However, I realized that there was no building of that height any where in that location. As I continued to observe the object I noticed that it had some kind of blinking lights. I attempted to climb a fence to gain a better vantage but was unable to gain any better view. The night sky was clear. I continued to observe the object for several more seconds. At no time did it move. I would estimate it was 20 times the size of a commercial aircraft. At no time was there any movement. At the time I was unable to really comprehend what I had observed. I began to return with my dogs to my apartment. Before I arrived I began to shudder and sweat. Realizing that I had witnessed an unusual occurance I return to the location where I had observed the object and it was gone. I walked around the complex seeking to find anyone whom might have observed the same thing. I couldn't find anyone. I spent the next hour or so returning to the site where I had observed the object, I also drove to the area I felt it had been located to see if by chance there was a building or anything to explain what I had seen. There was nothing.
