Very bright white disc moving across the sky in a very populated suburban town

Both of my parents, who are Russian immigrants, saw it while they were talking in the backyard. My mother has never seen a UFO in her life. She asked my father what it was.

Apparently, he hesitated when he saw it, then proceeded to run back into the house yelling for me. I thought there was a medical emergency because he has never yelled like that before.

He ran up the stairs and ran to the room across from mine. We both looked out the eastern window and I was in shock.

In the distance was what looked like a rotating disc with lights around the circumference. It was moving fairly quickly, maybe 100 feet per second.

The whole object was lit up and was clearly visible since it was the brightest object in the sky. All it did was move south.

I live in a suburb and the object appeared to be above the local golf course. From my location, I estimated that it was about half a mile away because the object was briefly obscured by the trees on a hill on the golf course. I can't imagine it being any farther than that because that would mean the object would have to be unimaginably huge.

I never believed in any UFO sightings because I always thought people photoshopped images just to gain popularity and scare people. Now, I am really not sure what to think. I am scared.

So far, I told some of my closest friends via text message and they insist that it was a drone. I refuse to believe they make drones that big.

Now I am pretty sure they all think I am becoming the crazy conspiracy theorist. I don't know who to talk to about this and I am currently trying to explain to my parents that society generally looks down upon people who claim to have seen UFOs.
