Appearance / Description of Object(s)
It was a large rotating sphere-ish/triangular-ish craft that was flashing purple and red and white lights. The red and purple lights were more subtle, as if they were just to illuminate the ship to be seen, while the white lights were like the lights on a flashlight or a lightbulb, except for the fact that it had no exact beam, but more of just a present light. It's hard to explain in words. But the white light was very bright, while the colored lights were subdued. Also, I could make out lighted squarey windows on the ship, surrounding it all around.
Size of Object(s)
Since this was many years ago, I can't exactly remember how the craft was to me, but I remember one of my children stretched out his arms all the way and said, "I could hold it in my hands!" So that gives you a good estimate, assuming that my child was average for his age of 8. Now the actual size was pretty large...Maybe 15-20 ft. tall, and anywhere from 35-60 ft. across. Again, it's hard to recall the exact size of the UFO.
Description of Area / Surroundings
It was in a small sub-division, in a rural suburban area. Houses around, but also some woods surrounding a lot of the houses and in the middle of the lots.
Full Description & Details
As I said earlier, we were all sitting around the table - we had eaten late because my husband was caught in traffic, and we just sat there for a few minutes to wind down. Anyway, just sitting there, we looked out the window and at first, we just saw the light from the UFO cast out over the trees. Our woods had a tree that was maybe 75-100 ft. tall, and the UFO couldn't have been more than 50 ft. above the tree. It came out over the ridge in our roof, flying low over the trees, and we were all screaming, "get the camera, get the camera!" Of course, that exact week at my daughter's birthday party we had run out of film and had not stopped to get more yet, so there were no pictures.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No I honestly do not think that it was anything made in this world. Unless it was a top-secret military project or something, it was't from this planet. It was completely silent, which I know because the windows were open in the summertime.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
My views on UFO's before this sighting were pretty much set. This wasn't the only UFO sighting I've ever seen, but it was by fat the most vivid. The other one I almost disregarded, but after this I did some serious research.
It was just a very freaky experience for my family and I, and I now whole-heartedly believe that there are other life-forms out there.
