Hovering is stationary flight, exhibited by bees, dragonflies, hummingbird hawk-moths, hummingbirds, bats, helicopters, balloons, and kites. Hovering generally consumes large amounts of fuel when done by rockets, special airplanes or hummingbirds.

Hovering also applies to the semi-squatting position often used by women while urinating to avoid sitting on a potentially contaminated toilet seat.

Hover may also refer to:

  • Levitation, the process by which an object is suspended by a physical force against gravity, in a stable position without solid physical contact
