Saw a UFO outside of house hovering over my head and exited so fast, looked t like a streak of lightning.

A dog had knocked over trash can again. So, I jumped up in my pajamas barefoot and ran outside chasing dog down the street. Walking back home I started walking up our very steep paved driveway and something , I'm not sure what made me look up. A very large silver/gray UFO was just hovering over my head not making any noise at all. I was like in a trance and just kept staring at it. I, also pinched my leg twice really hard to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I only saw the bottom of it for I was too scared to move. It had like 4 or 5 big LED round lights. They were not bright at all, but, dull. It just stayed there not moving at all. The surface was very smooth and not real shiny. Then without a sound it left All I saw was a trail looking like a long streak of lightning across the sky for as far as I could see. I talked to myself the whole time saying out loud what I was seeing. But, the shock and my moms reaction when I ran inside kept me from remembering. I have wanted to get hypnotized to see if I could remember things more clearly. I never have talked about it till about 10 years ago or less. I really want to remember more.
