08/23/81 Saratoga NY Saucer 5 min white football saucer shape with red circular lights accross the center

I was 13 years old spending the night at my cousins house. He had a farm in the countryside of upstate NY near Saratoga. I usually wake up to go the bathroom every night. I was sleeping in the same bed as my cousin ((name deleted)). there was a window right beside the bed. I woke up this night at 3:00 am and glanced out the second story window. What I saw has since changed my life. IT was football saucer in shape with round circular lights going through the middle of the Craft. The craft was glowing white and the circular lights in the middle were red. It was huge and probably about the size of a 747. It was probably about 300 feet over a field from the house. I stood there for about 3 minutes looking at the UFO. I ((deleted)). I finally woke my cousin ((name deleted)) up and he saw it also. when he saw it from a sitting position on the bed he just froze. I believe he was in shock. We both looked at for it for another 30 seconds and we screamed out to my uncle ((name deleted)) and his Dad. After we screamed out the UFO tuned all green and slowly moved around the side of the house. Then my uncle ((name deleted)) came into the room. he yelled at us and told us to go back to bed. After he left I changed my pajamas and looked out he side window to see nothing. The next day we went to the local city library and I looked at a UFO book and saw the exact same UFO. I have since watched a UFO program on TV and I heard someone describing the exact same UFO colors and everything.
