Bright white ball flew from west to east, did strange manuevers over and around Polaris.

The craft was round and white--not like an airplane at all. I looked out my back window and noticed something flying high, because there was a few jets flying by--making lots of noise...weird time to be flying jets! When i looked out the window, it slowly went from west to south east, and it appeared to be far away. I went outside a few minutes later to see it better, and because it had dissapeared from my window view. It was fairly nice outside, only misty-looking clouds in the north west. It went slightly past (I think) Polaris, to the left, then made a manuever to the right, which seemed too unreal for a plane to do.... It seemed to hover in the south east sky for about five minutes--and for thirty seconds or so, seemed to be coming toward my direction, then went back again. Then, after going around in a weird centricity, it seemed to still, right in front of what I believe to be Polaris. It did the strangest thing: it appeared to fly at the same rate as Polaris(?) was moving across the sky. I went in becauseit was cold for gloves, and when I came back, Polaris(?) was less intense--it was alone now.... Anyway,It was like a glowing ball of light. I watched for another hour outside on and off; and even brought out a map of the sky for positioning. But the map I have is for January--don't know if that was Polaris! I'm not into astronomy or aliens except to read sci-fi! I watched two airplanes cross the southeast sky afterward. Gave me a good idea of how close it was: not as close as an airplane--that's for sure! It never seemed to blink, too; not like the stars or airplane lights.
