Duration:30 seconds
Saw bright light complete circle around aircraft and then vanish.

Standing on 2nd floor balcony looking east toward Lake Michigan, which is approximately 7 blocks from my house. Looked up directly to zenith of night sky when I noticed a single medium bright white light traveling in a northward direction. The odd thing was 3 planes were in my view, I also live next to General Mitchell Airport, and I knew they were planes due to their flashing FAA lights.

As the UFO neared the plane closest to it, which was traveling south, the object changed its straight course and did a counterclockwise rotation around the airplane and after it completed the circle it seemed to get dimmer until gone. The plane was estimated to be at 5,000 feet however since I had no clue on the size of the UFO I don't know how high it was. The funny thing is I used to see the same objects every night (sometimes 19 in one night) every night during the summer of 2008 and until tonight have not witnessed the phenomenon again.
