Very bright object, the size of a penny or a nickel when held in the hand, "floating" over there.

When I woke up, around 5:30 am, I looked out the window and saw a bright object that looked like the moon, and the size of a penny or nickel when held in the hand, standing there.

Initially I did not make much of it, one way or the other. But then it hit me that it might be a UFO. All of a sudden, it was gone, but it did not go away, it just disappeared, like a light that is turned off. It was still rather dark and I could not see whether or not there were any clouds in the sky. But when the sun came out, I realized that there was not a single cloud in the sky. Evidently, the object had just disappeared, like a light that is turned off.

This took place in Clifton, NJ, to the west of New York City. (You can see the city from my apartment.) I do not know exactly the duration of the incident, because it was already "floating" over there when I woke up.
