UFO made several looping maneuvers in the sky at incredible speed and precision before disappearing.

I was on the back of a Royal Caribbean cruise ship with a friend. I looked up into the sky and saw what I thought was a shooting star, a small orb of light roughly the size and illumination of a standard nighttime satellite. The object followed a predictable trajectory and I followed it with my finger until it made a sudden and rapid looping maneuver, pivoting in a upwards motion and ascending to a higher altitude. It made several other technologically impossible looping maneuvers in the night sky many miles above the earths surface at a high rate of speed and precision, sometimes even coming to a complete stop before reversing course. Shocked, and realizing this was no shooting star nor satellite, I pulled out my camera and caught a short video of the craft as it made one final appearance. In the video, it jets into center frame and the blasts off, disappearing into the darkness of space. My friend witnessed it as well and it was her first UFO sighting.

I am a college educated man and UFO enthusiast. This is the second UFO I have seen, the first sighting being back in 2018 in central Florida. I now live in California and was back in Miami visiting a friend who worked on the ship.
