Playing with my siblings, and heard a humming engine with blinking red, and yellow lights. Did not look, or sound like a plane.

It was a regular winterís evening in January of 2008. Me and my siblings were all out on the front lawn of our modest home, building a snow man. Mid way through a snow ball fight, we all stop and crane our heads to the western skies. It felt like we were just indescribably drawn to this object. It made noises similar to the humming of a tractor engine, but almost more rhythmic, and less noisy. It was moving in an almost slanted pattern, and appeared to be almost oval, or rounded in shape. The object had flashing red, and yellow lights. These lights were in rows in the center, and almost resembled the lights on a carnival attraction. The lights blinked in a pattern of red, and yellow. It must have taken about two minutes, or less, given how we were transfixed by this object that glowed in the night. And just as soon as we saw it, it had vanished. This was definitely an unexplained- phenomena, because to this day, we have no idea what it was.
