Mysterious bright light spotted hovering over wooded area

I reside in Fayetteville, NC, and I live in an apartment on the second floor. I occasionally open my bedroom blinds at night to get beautiful views of the moon & stars.

Tonight around 10p.m., I opened my blinds, turned out my bedroom light and laid in bed gazing out of the window slightly to the right of where the moon is usually visible with hopes of witnessing the meteor shower. After looking toward the sky for sometime a bright light appeared and I noticed it was actually hovering over the woods in the back of my apartment complex. I watched the bright light as closely as possible to rule out the possibility of it being a drone being operated by someone nearby, it wasn't.

I called my husband to come look and he saw it as well. The bright light hovered for about 30 mins in the same spot and faster then I could blink it disappeared.

The moon & stars are not even visible tonight due to the frequent thunderstorms we are having so the only explanation is that it! was certainly an extraterrestrial sighting.
