Duration:45 minutes
Large, intense stationary bright light seemed to fade in and out over New Jersey.

While walking along the Hudson River on Manhattan's west side two friends and I witnessed an very large bright white light that just hovered over in the western sky over New Jersey. It was completely stationary and initially looked like a very bright planet shining in the clear blue sky, but soon became extremely intense, then fade away and turn to a barely visible cigar shape, before returning to a bright white light. For about 45 minutes we watched it fade in and out intensely. It seemed enormous in comparison to the planes flying in and out of Newark Airport.
