u.f.o sightin in oakland california, object tries to drop lower to the ground

My friend and i were drving her boyfriend home {i was driving, she was in the passenger seat and he was behind her) in oakland california, not so far from 106th ave, when we stoped at a stop light. My friend, her boyfriend and i were talking previously about a movie they had just went and seen, just then, my friend looks up into the sky and ask's me "is that a plane?" i looked up into the sky and i saw a disk shape figure, and it had yellow/orange lights moving from left to right going at a medium speed. i thought to myself that could be a plane, but planes have lights that guide it to where its going. there was no light and there was no movement. it just stayed in one place. and i asked her "is that a u.f.o?" and she kept tellin me she dont know she dont know... so then i looked at it more, i stared at in staying in one place. and i seen the whole shape of it.. it was like a disk with an upside down U on it. i remember i kept staring at it even when the light turned green, i stayed. All of a sudden the shape started lowering, not like it was landing like a plane, because a plane goes to land in strait forward line, this object was hovering in one place with it circleing, and then it started dropping real slow. strait down. my friends boyfriend, in the back seat kept telling us we were lying, but he opened his door and stuck his head out of the car, and saw the u.f.o also. he seen how scared i was and he told me to drop him off where we were, and he got out the car, as i turned the corner out of the gas station, i looked to see if the object was there and it was gone. it dissapeared. i believe this was a u.f.o. I have seen show's about u.f.o's and i heard they only go on the other half of the united states.. and they go to farms... but this is oakland, CALIFORNIA... no farms... no open area, just the regular city. and also, there was no planes in the sky, tjere was no noise like a plane, and this object was really close to us... enough to see the exact shape of the object.
