Bright, big, yellow glowing disk staying motionless in the night sky, then disappearing,,, in Manchester, CT

Hello, I just found out about the I wish I knew about it when this actually happened. I am sorry to report it so late, but I hope this information helps somehow. We didn't know where to email/call when it actually happened.

This is what our whole family witnessed: About 2 years ago, in Manchester, Connecticut (we were coming out of John Harvard's restaurant at Bucklands Hills Mall), our whole family saw an object in the sky that looked like a bright yellow glowing round disk. Many people around us were looking at the sky pointing at it, as well. The object was as bright yellow as the moon (the moon was also visible). It looked like a giant glowing doughnut in the sky.

It stayed in one place completely motionless for a few minutes, then it suddenly disappeared and then we noticed it in a totally different parts of the sky (we thought it was the same object, but who knows), then it disappeared again and then we noticed it in another part of the sky, then it disappeared completely. We (and all the people around us) were stunned. We've never seen anything like that before. Would love to find out some day what in the world that was.

Strangely enough, and to my great surprise, my son mentioned the following day that his classmate said that her relatives in Mexico called that same night to tell them that they saw the glowing disc-like object behaving "strangely" in the sky (the same night we saw it). I just thought I was in a twilight zone.

Just thought I'd share this information with you, Best regards.
