A circle of light appeared above the cloud cover, moved in an erratic zigzag pattern and then disappeared.

Around 5:50 pm on 1/6/23, I looked up to the sky. There was cloud cover, but a circular white light appeared and was visible behind the clouds. Because of that I would estimate it was the same distance from Earth that an airplane would be. It moved quickly in an erratic zigzag pattern for less than 5 seconds and then disappeared. There was no beam between it and Earth like I would have expected if it had been a spotlight of some kind. After the initial sighting, it reappeared less than 30 seconds later in the same location, and moved in the same pattern, again for less than 5 seconds, and then disappeared. There was an airplane that went by after the second appearance, but it seemed lower in the sky than the ball of light.
