Ring of lights floating over Midtown, Atlanta

While out having dinner, seated on the patio of a local restaurant, I saw an object shaped like a circle with a ring of circular lights underneath floating above the tree line. I asked my friend to look, and he too saw the object in the distance. I looked like the object would have be directly above 5th street near Piedmont Ave, but from our view was still close enough that we were able to clearly make out the shape, individual lights underneath, and the color of the lights was white with a slight bluish hint. It moved in a fluttering pattern like a feather would if you drop it. We watched for a couple seconds until it eventually drifted out of view behind some trees.

Other people would have had to have seen this object as it was just a little after 9 PM on a Saturday in central Atlanta. Tons of people were out and about.
