Location: Jersey City, NJ
Shape: Light
Duration: Three Seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A light appeared and shot across a small portion of the sky over the statue of liberty in an arc and then disappeared.

My girlfriend and I just walked out side to have a cigarette on the roof deck of our apartment which is about eight floors in the air and faces the statue of liberty. Our apartment consists of two towers and the roof deck conneects them. We are exactly one block away from the Hudson River so we are very close, and the sky was completely clear of clouds. There were only other planes and a few stars in the sky.

We sat down lit our cigarette when a singular light similar to a plane appeared and flashed across a specifc section of the sky in a downwards arc at an incredible speed of the likes I've never seen before. Judging by the speed and trajectory this could not have been anything like a shoot star. Also, because of the fact the light just went on then all of a sudden went off-not out of sight although we couldn't see it anymore-I do not think it was anything man made.

I have never been on a UFO site before nor have I have had a sighting. I do not know anything else that this could be.
