A strange light flashes in the sky and the lights reflect a dark circular object before it disappears completely

At about Ten P.M. Easter Standard Time on May 24th I looked out my window and saw a strange light flashing in the sky. I went outside to get a better view and what I saw was a bright flashing light that was not moving but hovering quietly. It began flashing blue lights and it flashed them in sequences. It would flash a light every second for three seconds and at the third second count it would hold for a longer period of time become very bright and then dim away for a few seconds before starting again. It then seemed to turn and move up and to the left. It stayed in that place and continued blinking and then it would seem to go far away and then appear again. I ruled out any chance of it being a star or an aircraft and after doing this and moving quickly to different positions it stopped completely and went out of sight. My neighbor looked at it and also saw it. A few minutes after it went away it seemed to appear one more time and as it blinked it’s lights you could see the outline of a dark circular shape around it in which the lights were reflecting off of it. It was truly mind-boggling.
