LARGE ROUND OBJECT, CLOSE TO THE GROUND, HOVERS IN MID AIR FOR SEVERAL MINUTES, THEN DIVES OFF BEHIND THE TREES IN DAYTON, OHIO

I was looking out my patio in the evening , and saw a round shape brightly lit all the way around it. It got closer to where I could see it very well, and well enough to know it was not a plane, and it was not a helicopter, and it was not a balloon of any kind. I was alone, and on the phone with my mother when I saw it. I looked at it for several minutes explaining to my mother what it looked like, and how it was just hovering in mid air not moving, when I saw my boyfriend driving down our driveway. I hung up on my mother, while I sprinted down the second floor steps to the parking lot of our apartment building. By the time I got to the parking lot to scream out to him to look up, it dove off to the north/east behind the trees very quickly, and it was gone, ALMOST AS IF IT KNEW I WAS TRYING TO GET SOMEONE ELSE TO LOOK AT IT. The lights were all the way around the craft, and seemed to move around or light up at different intervals. It was very close to the ground, closer than any commercial airliner would be. I am guessing it was around 10 pm and it wasn't cold out, so possibly summer or spring time, but I didnt log it down, so the details arent as clear as they were. I didnt want to tell anyone for fear they'd think I was crazy, but I am more curious now than anything to see if anyone else saw what I saw. I never heard anything on the news about it, but I am positive about what I saw, and the thought of it makes me feel very unsecure! The exact location was on Revere St. in Dayton, Ohio 45420 between Patterson and Watervliet.
