A huge orange triangle heads toward Earth!

I was about 9 (Im now 12) and I had just come home from school when my mom noticed all the cars pulling over. We asked some people outside their car why everyone was doing this. He pointed to the sky. A orange triangular craft with a circle in the middle of it was hovering in the sky. It was way too high for anyone to make out what it was but we could tell it was huge. It stayed in the same spot for about 15 minutes (since we got there) and it slowly turned into just the round circle in the middle. No one could believe it. The orange triangular craft formed into a circle right in front of our eyes! It starting coming closer to Earth. Still high in the sky but closer. It started moving in circular patterns in the sky. Heading even closer. Then it instantly went back up and vanished.
