Sighting Details

I was a kid ten years of age, my dad ,a friend,and myself were running trout lines on the walbash river in 1960 ,when I just happened to look up and seen this craft, I ask my father what it was , he had no answer , it was metalic looking like oxydies aluminum sperical craft with flats completely covering it similar to a geodesic home of today, but the flats were trapizoidal in their shape.it had four bars that seemed to be4/6 feet in length extruding out from the surface of the sphere, at top & bottom about a 1/4 from top & bottom . Red light on top with what looked like a atenna on top , green light on bottom with antenna . The craft was completely silent ,it also was moving about 4 miles / hr. Turning slowly the whole time it was moving in a horizontal clockwise movement. It maintained this treetop hieght and a controlled movement following the river, followed eastwardly then going south around a bend in the river which then went back north following the river until because of the trees finally lost sight of the craft. I seen this craft 53 yrs ago , I've never seen anything like it since, not in any air craft books ,UFO books or tv shows, to this day I'm still puzzled to just what it was we seen. The image of this craft is still burnt into my memory.Would love to know what this thing was. The three of us were all in just awe of what we were seeing , but no one knew what it was.and still don't.
