Location: Sound Beach, NY
Shape: Changing
Duration: 50 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object made a sound
A huge very bright ring shape flying towards my house and changing shape, photograps look like disc and Chevron shape

My chair where I watch TV is opposite the front door. I was sitting there as I do most of the time. My door has an arched window at the top. A large gold ring appeared in the window, which caught my eye...a half circle... coming up from the NW..from behind my neighbors house...it was very dark outside and this object was far away, but very bright and the ring shape was huge.
My neighbos house is higher up than mine and across the street. (My second story is ground level to them.)
Then the light changed and looked like a very bright spidery...super long light trails.
And then it was a ring again, then again like a spider. It was a very large each time like it was close, but it was far away.
Maybe the shape change was just my eyes or refracting on my door glass but I have never seen that happen before.
I yelled to my husband in the kitchen to look in out the window, and ran into the kitchen, you could see it out the window, high in the sky over my neighbors house, but not very well through that window. We have lots of trees blocking the sky but it was incredibly bright. Still looking like a giant spidery star.
I grabbed my husbands phone and ran back to the living room to the door. There is snow everywhere outside, and I had no shoes on, so I held the door open and took pictures.
Instead of going straight over my house it had banked to it's left, giving me an extra few seconds to take pictures.
I took two pictures, they are strange. The lights reflect down to my house, even under the eaves of my roof. The light is so bright you can't even tell it was behind many branches.
I've never seen a plane or anything come that direction or be that bright, and we have had choppers fairly often.

I thought I heard a hum outside but not sure where that was coming from.
It is about 20 degrees outside.
About a half hour later I took a third picture of the same area to make sure the street light wasn't any part of what I saw. Maybe because I was calmer than, but there was a whole different vibe outside: calmer, silent. And apparently that thing had lit up the area more.
I have seen helicopters and planes at night, I always see the little lights flashing. This had no flashing lights and this was just very different to me.

My husband also said he never saw anything like it before.

I believe the direction it came from would be NW.

Your site won't let me upload my images.
