Facing the gulf of mexico we noticed a luminescent circular object appear out over the gulf. It was translucent and glowing

While me and my friends were on spring break down in panama city florida we noticed a strange and eerie event. We were bored one night ,which kept us at the hotel. We were all sitting out on the back deck near the pool. I have seen many objects before but my friends always laughed at me when I would tell them of such things. But this is what I needed to convince them. We were all facing the ocean, just like any northerner would do when they go to florida. It was a real dark ,clear night. I was the first one to spot the object. I pointed it out laughing and said "look a ufo!" My one drunk friend said oh thats just a kite. But how would you see a kite at night? And I could see how he could of mistakened it for a kite. It was round and clear but it had a glow within it. It spun around and looked as if someone was controlling it with a string. then it stood completely still and took off with amazing speed out into the gulf.
