Circular UFO resembling a Roomba hovered 50yds behind our house, just over the neighbor’s house

11:30pm, a great night for star gazing from the back patio. I’m showing off my astronomy skills so my girlfriend asks “what is that star?” I look at it and it’s really really high up to be a plane or a helicopter. It was whiteish with seemingly red flashes. I must have been staring at it for ten straight minutes and it begins dancing in the sky! It still look like a star at this point but the movements were totally unnatural, up, down, left, sideways, diaganol, and the speeds it must have been moving at weren’t possible. That’s when it happened. As we’re staring at the first UFO, a second UFO appears hovering maybe two streets behind our house, at a height of a 4 story building. We got an incredible view of it because it has flown so close. My best description would be that it looked Roomba (robot vacuum cleaner) hovering in the air. It was too dark to accurately report a color. Looked darker and metallic maybe. It was circular and seemingly to totally flat! on top and bottom. I would guesstimate that it wasn’t very large, maybe the size of a small circular coffee table. It wasn’t rotating at all. I could tell because it had this bright blinking red light like a security camera and some dimmer white lights built in, but the lights weren’t spinning and the red flashing light was aimed right at us the entire time. This creeped us out because it almost looked like it knew we were looking and was looking back at us. Moving so so slow through the sky. At first I thought a neighbor kid might have a drone, but as it did a fly by, I quickly realized no drone would look like that. There were no propellor, a very light whooshhhhhhhhh sound was made, and it glided through the air but so so slowly. Felt like 5 mph. This part of the experience last 2 minutes or so, but it was enough to scare us to go inside. I looked over at my girlfriend and we (sane and rational intellectuals) both sat there trying to grasp what we just witnessed. It re! ally didn’t feel real. After a few minutes, a collection of ab! out 3 mo re star looking lights appeared in the sky. Again, very high in the sky, red/white in color, variations of different movements but mostly stationary.

We have both never seen anything like it, it was scary/interesting/weird/mind-opening. I really didn’t know if I believe until I saw the second one. If it was a drone, that drone would cost $1 million.
