Unspecified UFO Sighting from West Lafayette, Indiana 1978

1978 it was, I was young then, 22 to be exact. I was out with some friends and we all saw this very strangely shaped object in the sky. Obviously a UFO but so very different from those classic disc shapes. I mean this one did have a bit of a disc on the bottom but then this tall elaborate structure on the top.
This object was in the sky a few hundred feet up and to me it looked as big as a small commercial jet. It was sitting absolutely still but some of the lights were blinking.
    We were all awestruck by this. We looked at it for about half a minute and in all that time no one said a word, we just stood there with our jaws on the ground.
Then all of a sudden it was gone. I didn't fly away, it was just gone. How is that even possible? A large thing like that? I had a much better drawing of it that I drew in 1978 but someone stole it so I redrew it the best I could. If I ever get the original one back I'll post that too.
