One minute sighting of massive football sized sphere about 2000 ft up

Thursday October 5th at approximately 7:45pm I was out on the back lanai (porch) of the 26th floor of my building putting my dinner dishes to dry in the hot outside air.

The cloud formation next to the full moon that night was very unusual so I kept staring at it. It became more solid white and then something lowered through it. The shape of the object was spherical and very massive, about 2000 ft. up. The sides of the sphere were tall, it was not a flat sphere. My son was present with me and he became frightened and ran inside. Then as the sphere lowered more over the Ala Wai canal, just a little west of Diamond Head Crater, a green channel of light was extended down from the craft and that channel of light did not touch any of the apartment buildings or the street below. I called son back to see the channel of light and he described the same thing that I saw, that the green channel of light did not touch all the way down. The object we saw lasted only one minute in the sky above us.
