It was late at night, around 1:17 AM EST, when I went to look outside through our dining room window to see what the weather was like. Just as soon as I looked up at the night sky, I simply saw a very bright perfectly circular orb powered up from inside one of the clouds - it was so bright and there were no lightning going on, for certain. I could tell that the source of the light was an extraterrestrial craft, unquestionably. The way the light emitted, I immediately knew it was not an act of mother nature. I was hoping to see more but it did not occur again; but better yet, while looking at that part of the sky where the "power up" took place - I kept going and looked further up to almost right above in the sky, I clearly saw a yellowish-white circular orb (no anti-collision lights or strobes from any airplanes, assuredly) moving erratically but was in a gliding fashion til it was out of sight from my vantage point. Well, I am quite familiar with satellites, commercial and military drones, airplanes and such man-made objects moving around the night sky - but this was not it, to simply put it. The way the light maneuvered, it was as if it was designed to defy gravity and how it glided so gracefully like you would see how an air hockey puck would move. Get the picture? This was my first ever witnessed UFO craft. I won't be surprised that the darling extraterrestrials from these crafts "knew" that it was seen and how they wanted to be seen.
