White Blob Hovering over Minumum Security Facility

I was driving North getting on to Yaphank Av, from Horseblock Rd. I stobe light flash caught my attention, when I looked North West I saw a whitish shape hovering above the Suffolk County Minumum Security facility. I watched it until the trees obsctructed my view. There were no visible lights, other than the initial flash that attracted my attention. Once I reached my destination (on the same road), I watched the general area for about 5 minutes, but there was no further sign of the object. But an airplane did fly near the same location about 5 minutes after my sighting.
