Shape: Light
bright, blue light, high in sky, glowing like flame

bright,blue light glowing in sky; pulsating sometimes; directly overhead 144th St. Convent Ave, New York City; cloudy sky with 3/4 moon out--did not see moon, but did see star in southern sky; Object was below clouds but high in sky; no sound; did not move; light got bigger and then smaller and sometimes vanished and came back in same spot; at least 3 times it flashed like a broken light/ florscence; It was a little after 12 am, as I was walking home, men in street asked me if I knew what it was/ they were looking up; I did same and told them it was not a helicopter or plane as it made no sound and did not move; I am business man and guys in street were blue collar and one was walking dog.

((NUFORC Note: Report seems to us not inconsistent with that of a celestial body, unless it was, in fact, below the cloud layer. We know, from experience, that celestial bodies sometimes leave observers with the impression that the object is below cloud, when it is above the cloud layer. PD))
