Duration:45 mins +
A strange large light hovering and slowly descending until it disappears over the Shawangunk Mountains.

I witnessed something that looked light it could have been a large, bright star, however, it appeared from up high in the sky and then slowly descended lower and lower until it disappeared seemingly getting smaller and moving away. I have never seen anything so bizarre. I though perhaps it was this a hovering plane of some sort, however, I witnessed a plane flying under it and it was moving at a normal pace whereas this large light of sorts moved slowly and at times appeard to just hover. When I stared at it, I though I saw flikering lights within the light. I though my eyes were playing tricks on me. Can anyone help me confirm this siting?
