I saw a big yellow ball of light hovering over the water by the only village and populated area on the stretch.

One thing, now when people who carp on about...Why didn't you do this or that?; You know first hand how it's just not that simple when confronted with something that just "doesn't fit" into your life's experience. Don't knock yourself out over it, I and anyone with an ounce of empathy, understands exactly how it goes. The truth is, none of us know how we will react in circumstances such as yours.
Thank you for taking to the time to share the experience.
zig-zagging point in the sky reminds me being a reflection or a distortion of light seen through or on a glass surface in motion.
I was driving southwards, but the sun was not coming up that that point, it was as dark as night.

I have another interesting thing I once saw. I forget when it exactly it occurred. I was near Avon Park, Florida. I think it was before 1998. It was late at night maybe 11:00pm. There was a very large shooting start that entered the atmosphere. It seemed like it lasted at least 30 seconds but time is relative and. It looked like a big missile coming in with a huge tail of fire... About five minutes later the space shuttle launched. It seemed like a very strange coincidence. I have watched numerous meteor showers and I have never seen one as big and bright as this. To be followed by a shuttle launch was an awesome sight. I am sure others must have seen it. I wasn't an internet troll back then so I never read anything about it.
I don't think it's as unlikely as you think. What you saw was in the air, but how do you know it wasn't a reflection of something on the ground? Kind of like this:

I've considered this, but it's unlikely that anyone in the village had anything to do with anything like what I saw so late in the night, or even daylight.
The top of a small island on the horizon is "mirrored" in the sky above, creating the illusion of a disc-like object that hovers in mid-air.
