In most dictionaries the word hover means "to remain suspended over a place or object" and "to hang fluttering in the air or on the wing". Sometimes "to float in the air without moving in any direction".
I would like to know if I can use it to speak about an object or person who is floating in the air under [something], a ceiling for instance. Is there a better word for that?
- The drone was hovering right under (below) the ceiling. (by request of SteveES)
