Round UFO may be related to flashing star-like ufo that reacted to laser pointer.

I was looking up. I saw a star floating slowly by high in the sky. Later, a shooting star in the same area. I will often times take a phone picture of the sky on an active night hoping to catch something random. On this night I did. I did not see it at the time of snapping the phone. Later when I looked at the photo I saw the ball shaped object. Its the view from my driveway, so I know there are no street lights or any thing else with similar look. The next night i was looking up and saw another star-like light. But this one's light turned-off right as I focused in on it. I shined my laser in its direction, the light came back on. This went on over 20 times, back and forth with no regular pattern of on/off, of duration when light was on, even the brightness varied. It was moving very slow, took 10-15 minutes to cross about 60 degrees of the overhead sky. I see "moving stars" and on/off stars at least once per week, sometimes daily.
