bright circle light in the sky (it was morning daylight hours)...did not look like a light from a plane...approximately the size of a dime with my arm outstretched...the object left a trail, like an airplane but the trail zig-zagged back and forth...the trail went across the sky, not up from the ground...the object then disappeared for about 5 seconds and then reappeared for about another 10 seconds and then disappeared again...really strange...when the light disappeared it literally vanished...there were no clouds around
