What did the UFO look like, shape/size in relation to terrestrial objects/lights/colour :

Four long white lights of equal length in a straight line lengthwise, almost touching, with one small flashing light on one side almost touching the second to last one.

It appeared to be about the length of my little finger held at arm’s length and no more than a couple hundred feet in the air.

I live below an airport holding pattern pathway and know what most airplanes look like at night. This did not look like any airplane I’ve ever seen.

Also, any airplane as low as this object was would have been noisy and this object made no sound that I could hear. It moved in a straight line slower that an airplane would have.

Did the UFO do any strange things like hover and then zoom off quickly :

No. It just moved in a straight line.

Any additional comments :

It was almost over my head before I saw it and it soon disappeared behind some trees so I didn’t see it for long. I have never seen a UFO before.
