I was outside of my home taking out the garbage. After placing the bags at the curb I turned to the south west to go into my house when I saw a large object with 3 extremely bright white lights just above the tree line. It startled me because I have not seen anything like it before. There were no colored lights on the object, only white. I watched the object slowly descend at a slight downward angle for about 2 minutes when suddenly the lights were gone. It sent a chill down my spine. Like I said I have never seen like this before. After the lights disappeared I immediately went in my house.
