Saw what appeared to be a shooting star that just continuously kept moving through the sky slowly, twice.

We witnessed a very clear sky tonight after fireworks and saw (twice) what appeared to come out of nowhere circle in the sky - very similar in size and brightness to that of a star.

This same occurrence happened twice, one not too long after the other, though we did not see both dots moving through the sky in synchrony.

Each glowing circle moved across the sky in curved and non-linear formations, both at separate occurring times.

We debated for a while if either could be a plane, but they were not blinking at rather very strong fixed light sources moving in ways quite adverse to what I've witnessed as regular flight patterns.

Each circle would move through the sky appearing out of nowhere/we just noticed it? /seeming like a shooting star, however, it did not burn out and would continuously move across the sky until we were straining our eyes to try and watch it and then it would disappear.

We did feel we saw a significantly larger number of planes tonight as well, though I'm quite sure that just happened to be a separate weird thing.
