It was late at night approximately 11:30 - 12:30 when i looked out my 2nd floor br window just before going to bed. the building is at the top of a long hill. looking sw, i noticed a large object about 500 yds from my building with two rows of bright white lights that was stationary in the sky. it was low in the sky, appearing just in front and above the church steeple about two blocks from me and was completely silent. the lights were steady and there was no visible movement in or around it. the night was cold, no snow on the ground and it was quiet with no traffic or traffic lights nearby. i watched it for about 20 minutes and finally went to bed. it was gone in the morning when i woke up and have never seen one again.
