Land O Lakes sighting

I am a sane 45 year old professional woman who lives in the Sable Ridge subdivision of Land O Lakes, FL.

I was coming home from work between 4:10 pm- 4:15 pm I witness an illuminated cigar shaped hovering above the Publix shopping plaza very high above. I assumed it was a “advertising “ balloon, then it hovered and I noticed it going horizontal, I drove about a mile and the ufo was hovering above another subdivision. I figured it was a "remote control" ship of some sort, but it was clearly larger than that. I watched as it moved effortlessly against a darkened sky (it had been a rainy afternoon).

I kept driving and when I got to my daughter’s school to pick her up I noticed it behind some woods near there. I wanted to take a picture/check it out with my binoculars, but it went behind the woods and that was the last I saw of it.
