Disc Shaped Saucer over Alice Springs

I was doing a semester abroad in Australia. Took a class that had us visit Alice Springs. Arrived a day early. Took a bus from a hostel into town. When I wanted to go home, I sat at a circle waiting for the bus back to the hostel. Clear day, nothing but blue sky.

Happened to be looking up while I was waiting and saw a class silver disc saucer. First noticed that it was much higher up than standard aircraft and traveling at a constant but noticeably faster speed than normal airplanes.

I observed it travel across the sky this way for a good 30 secs. Then, all of sudden it stopped on a dime in middair for a few seconds and hovered. It then traveled extremely quickly for a short distance in a different direction before pausing again, this time only for a brief moment, then it took off in a third direction, this time at a rate of insane speed and became blur that left my field of view in a fraction of a second.

Watched a TV show years later that pointed out that local Pine Gap facility is known to test disc shaped aircraft in the area and my sighting was likely another confirmation of that.
