Spherical, yellow light near Montego Bay airport.

I grew up in Montego Bay, Jamaica. I was ten years old and at home playing in the yard. It was sunny. A change in the afternoon light caught my eye. I looked to the sky and saw a spherical object that appeared as a bright yellow light and hovered in the direction of the Sangster International Airport. It hovered for approximately 5 seconds. There was no engine noise. Then, in a sudden movement, it moved behind some gathering clouds and disappeared. I lived near the airport and was quite accustomed to seeing planes land and take-off, and hearing the noise of aircraft, everyday. This was no ordinary aircraft. I remember my heart racing for a few moments as I was quite scared and excited by what I had seen. I have never again seen anything remotely like that.
