Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
single light in sky, very fast, and also hovering, and changing direction at 45 degree angles, and twinkling

in the early morning of 4/29/10, at approximately 3:00 (am), I went outside in my yard to have a cigarette, and let the dog out. I was looking up at the stars, and noticed what I thought at first was a star. it was kind of twinkling. nothing strange at all. until i realized that this "light" was moving. it was headed in a west direction, then went south, at a 45 degree angle. then just stopped. and remained there for about 2 minutes. it then moved again north at a 45 degree angle, then west. for about 30 seconds, then again, headed west. It gave off one last "twinkle", then I could not see it anymore. like I said, I thought it was a star, because thats what it looked like. ( size, shape, brightness) Until i knew it was most definately moving. from its distance, i could not tell where it was as far as location, somewhere over the south shore of nassau county, or perhaps over the water? But, it WAS there. i know what I saw. my yard is dark, so ! at night, I have a beautiful view of the sky, and it was amazingly clear out, and a bit crisp. I live close to an airfield (farmingdale), and at that time to my knowledge, there are no small craft flying, or weather ballons. There is also a major air port (MacArthur) about 20 minutes east of me, but this was not a commercial airline, nor a small craft. And at the angle at which it changed, its distance, and its speed, related to that distance. there were no blinking lights, unless you would ascertain the "twinkling" as such. did not leave a trail, and no sound. I just thought I should tell someone outside of family and friends, well because of the obvious reactions.

I swear this is true, not a hoax, and accurate to the best of my ability.
