Low flying huge circular light seen silently heading towards the North

I remember the date very correctly because it was my birthday. Me and my cousin were on my terrace on the 1st floor. It had just become dark and we were chatting enjoying the cool air when I happened to look up (I like to look up at the sky a lot) and saw this huge light.

I say huge because no star, meteorite, satellite, planet etc is that big and bright as this object was. It was around 4-5 times the size of Venus as seen with the naked eye. My first thought was "it's a plane". But then I thought planes didn't fly that low (it was pretty low for an aircraft) and also planes weren't circular in shape and I had never seen a plane with lights that huge.

The object was seen as a huge circular light slowly gliding through the night sky heading towards the north. Me and my cousin rushed to the 2nd floor terrace to get a better view of the object and followed it until it was lost from our sight.

I hadn't noticed it at first but my cousin pointed out a circular cone of light extending down from the circular object. After seeing that circular cone of light pointing downwards I was pretty sure this thing was not something made by man. Up to that point I had entertained the thought that this might be some type of secret military aircraft.

Also I forgot to mention that the object made absolutely no sound at all. It was complete silent.
