Saw a retangular object about the size of large plane on July 10, 2010 which emitted an amber light from the bottom.

My husband was sleeping in the back part of the house which looks over a wooded four acres with a clearing of about one half acre. He says that he woke up suddenly which he never does- he is a very sound sleeper.

He looked out the window and saw a rectangular object flying over the clearing area. From his window he was looking at the underside of the craft which was emitting an orange/amber light. The craft was traveling from east to west and seemed to be moving quickly. His window was open and he said the craft made a soft noise that sounded like a skateboard on pavement.

Earlier that night, sleeping in the front room, I heard but did not see two helicopters passes about one half hour apart moving west to east. We are very familiar with helicopter noise since we used to live near a large medical center. These were low and large helicopters and I would estimate they passed between one and two A.M.

We are both college-educated professionals. Neither of us has seen a UFO prior to this. My husband is a healthy 65 and I am 56.
