Very bright disk light object at a dead stop in the sky signals then zooms away.

On Sunday March 11th, 2018, a fairly bright light hovering in the sky caught my attention. Upon further inspection, I can make out a disk shape in the sky basically parked in place. I'm always looking up hoping to see UFO's but I'm a semi-skeptical person. So I stare at if for a while. My little brother is fairly close to me, he follows my gaze and then rolls his eyes and says "Izzy relax, its probably just a plane." To which I respond, "No David, look. See behind that thing? Moving slowly with the light? THATS a plane" and I point at a plane clearly visible much much farther BEHIND the object, moving slowly, and clearly identifiable by its blinking red navigation light.

This proved two things. The object was definitely parked in place, and it was not an ordinary aircraft because although the sun has set at 7:36, it was around 7:45 at the time and it was still bright out. NOT bright enough for a normal aircraft to have its "brights" on. The airplane cruising in the far distance only had a faint plane-shaped figure with no other lights on other than its red blinking navigation lights. We both agree that this is weird, and as he continues to go on with his business (he was washing our mothers vehicle at the time of the incident). I decide to take out my phone and take a video of it.

At this moment two things begin to happen. My mother comes out of her adobe and I point at the UFO and tell her "mom look, it has NOT moved" and as I say those words I notice that there has been a change in the object. The previously bright shining constant light emitted from the bottom of the aircraft has turned into a single light circling around and around the base of the aircraft. After a few cycles, the light sequence changes yet again, but this time it does a sequential light signal pointing in the direction it is about to zoom to. After five sequences it zooms at an impossible speed silently.
