slow moving starlike object that appeared to chaged shape in broad daylight

I was in my backyard around 6:30pm watering my lawn and I look up to the north and there is a bright white object in the sky that got my attention it was moving but not going in any direction kind of rotating itself and it was hard to see because the sun was still out and this thing would either reflect the sun or it would light up every other second because this thing looked like a star in broad daylight it also appeared to change shape and when I looked at it. The object appeared to give off some kind of heat like if you look down a road in the summertime the way the heat from the sun reflects off the pavement this thing appeared to have a circle around it and outside this circle it was giving off waves heat like reflecting the sun so I called my roommate (A Network manager at an architectural firm) and he told me to get the video camera which I did. It was my first time using my roommate’s camera and after viewing what I had there are parts where this thing has 8 or more orbs in a triangle formation. this object then headed slowly to the south east at which point I saw a commercial airliner fly right past it the pilot had to have seen this object, around 7:30pm my roommate gets home and I point the thing out to him as it was now much farther away he agreed with me it definitely wasn’t a plane and neither of us had any idea what this thing was. I am a California State Employee of 12 years.
