Looking at the Milky Way facing South East just east of the mountain we were facing . A ufo popped out, out of nowhere as soon as it caught my eye, I saw it slowly spinning and moving side to side toward the mountain. As soon as I saw it I told the rest of my party to look at it. There me and my dad confirmed with our eye that it was spinning and moving side to side then coming to a still, levitating east of the mountain. We did see a physical form to the object, we knew that Jupiter and Venus were coming in the same direction, we were skeptical of it being a ufo. But we couldnít deny that we saw a physical form for around 15 minutes, maybe less. We took numerous photos and videos. The object was maybe 1.5 miles southeast of us. As far as the physical form goes, when I first saw it I thought I saw an orange yellowish color but as soon as it came to a still the color got less. But it looked like it was scanning something because while spinning and levitating we saw an orange color lighting underneath it. Disk shape aside we saw the disk have what looked like landing legs not long but just coming a bit down from each side of the object. I could clearly see what looked like multiple smaller lights on the actual disc spinning. We knew then it was a ufo, the figure was quite large and made zero sound. There were other campers and off roaders around us. I can guarantee that we werenít the only ones who saw it. At first it looked like it was facing us, a few minutes later, it started facing what looked like the mountain, then a few more minutes later facing east. While recording we got on video of it actually floating side to side and making weird movements. After video taping 2 videos I went to my SkyView app to see if I can get any clues from the rising Jupiter and venus. My theory was that the ufo was using the light of Jupiter and Venus to mask its shape with 2 of its lights imitating the light of Venus and Jupiter. After around 15 minutes of seeing the actual shape of the object, it was beginning to go dark and looked like (hate to say this) camouflage itself to mask its presence . I said this loudly to my fellow party members to make sure they get it on video, because I figured it would fly off after doing so. But it was very clear that it was fading itself. After this we only saw 2 lights and no physical form. At around 5am all you could see was Jupiter and Venus. At this point we were trying to convince ourselves it was a drone. But after looking at the videos we got and trusting what we actually saw with our eyes we could confirm it was a ufo. Forgot to mention while it was spinning you could literally see small thrusters helping it rotate. Iím no scientist or astronomer but I could confidently say we saw a physical form of the object, while it was masking itself with Jupiter and Venusís light. The movements of the object was bizarre and extraordinary. Being able to move in such an unpredictable type of way sometimes up and down, left and right, diagonally. It was crazy.

also really important forgot to mention the top of the object was what looked like a pod on top of it. Almost like what people typically say ufos are like. But as far as its actual shape and detail, I haven't been able to find anything similar to it online.

Also forgot to mention, all night we saw hundreds of airplanes flying with their lights blinking the typical red and blue and white. But during the encounter I looked around and couldn't find one airplane around us and above us. We heard a jet after like 10 minutes of the object just hovering beside the mountain, we figured it was our Air Force or defense force, locating the ufo. Later we saw an aircraft fly over us But had no indications of lights. I thought it was a satellite at first but wasnít as far as what a satellite would be and wasnít moving fast enough for it to be. Figured it was either another ufo or just an airplane staying laying low trying not to get detected by the ufo.
