circling yellow light over Pittsburgh

I got home from work at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Saturday night, 10/06/12. When I was almost at my doorway, I was distracted by a light in the sky. It was a circular hazy yellow light. It was cloudy and at first looked like it could be light emitted by a plane above the clouds, but it was too large. I then noticed that the light moved in a circular pattern and quickly. It was almost like a hawk circling above. I stood and watched this occur for about 5-10 minutes. Usually, there are people in and out of my apartment complex and I so badly wanted someone else out there to see the sight but no one came. I then decided it wasn’t the safest thing for me to be standing outside at midnight by myself in the city with my attention solely on the sky, so I went inside. I have no idea how long it was occurring prior to me noticing the light or how long it lasted after I went inside. About 5-10 minutes after I went inside I realized I should have been able ! to see the exact same spot in the sky from my one window, but saw nothing when I looked out.
