PINPOINT OF LIGHT OVER STATEN ISLAND

ON JUNE 9TH WHILE IN A PARK ON STATEN ISLAND, I NOTICED SOMETHING UNUSUAL VERY HIGH IN THE SKY THAT I HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE., NOR WAS I LOOKING FOR. WHILE LOOKING AT THE SKY TRAFFIC, I HAPPENED TO NOTICE A PINPOINT OF LIGHT WAY UP AND OUT THEREIN THE S.E. SKY THAT WAS NOT A PLANE OR A STAR. I NOTIFIED A FEW OTHERS WHO ALSO SAW IT MOVE VERY SLOWLY BEHIND THE CLOUD COVER. ONE HALF HOUR LATER, I NOTICED THE SAME PINPOINT OF LIGHT WAY OUT IN THE EASTERN SKY. IT WAS MOVING VERY SLOWLY AND WAS SOON LOST AGAIN IN THE CLOUD COVER. ABOUT ONE HALF HOUR LATER, I SAW IT AGAIN IN THE S.E. SKY. I WAS LOOKING FOR IT BY THIS TIME, AND THERE WERE SEVERAKL OTHER WITNESSES. THIS PINPOINT OF LIGHT WAS UNREMARKABLE, EXCEPT THAT IT APPEARED SUDDENLY, MOVED SLOWLY AND WAS VERY HIGH UP. IT DID NOT STROBE. OF ALL DAYS NOT TO HAVE MY BINOCULARS.
