White lights around a large circular object moving down from the dark sky behind some trees

I was over at my neighbor’s chatting with her & her brother on the front porch. It was a cloudy that night. I was facing toward the south & I happen to catch a row of six circular white lights moving slowly downwards. The object was about a block away. I pointed at the object to show my neighbors & to make sure I wasn’t the only one seeing it.Their mouths dropped when they saw it.

The object was moving downwards in a diagonal direction to the right & was moving around in a circular motion while doing this. It was a relatively large object, I wouldn’t say larger than the moon though, maybe half the size of the moon if you were looking at the two side by side in the sky. It was moving really slow at first so I ran off the porch & snapped a couple of pictures of it on my iPhone. It looked like it was pretty close to the surface, definitely not the height a plane would be traveling at. It started to pick up speed & soon it vanished behind the trees. I tried running around the corner to see if I could look through the trees, but didn’t catch any suspicious lights. The neighborhood dogs started barking & I heard a strange ringing in my left ear. After that I got freaked out & ran back to my neighbor’s porch.
