A strange big oval shaped bright light hovering in the sky for about ten minutes before slowly moving away and then disappearing

A friend and I went around 10:30 PM to a view spot on a hill where many people go to look at the city. At about 11:30 we saw a very strange big bright oval light hovering in the sky. It looked too bright and big to be any ordinary plane or helicopter. We captured a photo of it and video and in the photo if you zoom in you can distinctively see it is a large oval and is a orange and yellow light. At the time there was no sound of a air plane or helicopter and it was too close to be a star. It hovered with two small dots in the sky for about ten minutes and then it started to move away and suddenly disappeared. My friend and I discussed it for quite a long time trying to figure it out debating what we had just witnessed. There was ultimately no explanation for what we had seen. It just sat there in the sky hovering for ten minutes and it was the most bright unusual thing I had ever seen. It almost looked like the sun but obviously smaller. We showed what we ca! ptured to multiple people and they all agreed that was no plane nor helicopter.
