I witnessed a craft with 5 or 6 orange lights on the front and flashing blue and white lights on the sides it hovered overhead for seve

On Tuesday March 14, 2017, around dusk I was relaxing in my hot tub. I glanced up at the sky and noticed what I assumed was a plane traveling from south to north (towards me). As it got closer I noticed 5 or perhaps 6 solid orange lights on the front of the craft. The sides of the craft had blue and white flashing lights. As I continued watching trying to figure out what it was I was seeing the craft stopped moving and began hovering directly over me. By then the sky was darker and I couldn't make out the shape of the craft I could only see the lights. It stayed in that position for several minutes so my instinct was to wave, so I did and a few seconds later it turned off slightly to the east. I thought it was leaving until it then backed up and repositioned itself directly overhead again. It stayed hovering for a few more minutes, so naturally I waved again and once again the craft began moving, only this time it curved off to the west and then reversed dire! ctly back overhead.

At this point I knew this was something highly unusual and I was getting both nervous and anxious and wanted my family members who were in the house to come out to witness whatever this was. Still keeping my eyes on this craft I got out of the hot tub and walked over to close the lid which only took a few seconds then glanced back up to the sky and the craft was GONE! I couldn't believe it. I walked out further in the yard to try and spot it and there was not a trace of it.

I have no idea what I saw that night but I don't believe it was a drone as it was the size of an aircraft.
