What did the UFO look like, shape/size in relation to terrestrial objects/lights/colour: A bright light, similar to star in the morning sky. Against a purple, orange sunrise.
Did the UFO do any strange things like hover and then zoom off quickly: It was hovering for more than a minute. First it’s brilliance attracted me, assuming it was a star I was about to dismiss it as that until it began to move in circles. Small circles, then larger as if recon. Covering at least 2 miles back & forth in a matter of seconds, then flying on an upward angle to the south-west.
Any additional comments: I was a skeptic until I witnessed with 4 others watching it from the street and a stopped car. The local airport confirmed no flights in the area at that time of day and on a Saturday.
