Bright light appears over NYC

I was sitting in the car with my girlfriend outside of her house at approximately 5:00 a.m. early Sunday morning. As I was staring out the windshield into the sky I noticed an unusually bright light in the sky. The object looked like a star but appeared to be in the sky at or about the same level a plane would be. The object did not appear to be moving, so I immediately ruled out that it was a plane and it was also much to high to be a helicopter. After staring at it for a few minutes I noticed that the object actually had moved slightly in the sky and was no longer in the spot it was just a few minutes ago. The light appeared to be about 5 times in diameter bigger than the north star. When I zoomed in on it with a camera, I noticed that the object actually was not bright white but it was actually blinking other colors of light. Red, green, blue and yellow lights were blinking one at a time. But when you looked at it with the naked eye it appeared to be just bright yellow or white. After driving around for a short while I tried to figure out exactly where in the sky the object was. I estimated that it was somewhere between Brooklyn and Manhattan as I was staring at it from the eastern shores of Staten Island. Staring at it with the naked eye, the object looked like a white flair that was not moving in the sky. Just a very bright and close twinkling white star, but as I said when you zoomed in on it, it appeared to be blinking different colors. When my girlfriend attempted to take pictures of it, it would not appear on camera. For a split second we were able to zoom on it very well and see that it was actually a circular object. I have never seen anything like this in my life and I am wondering if any other people saw this object because it was in the sky for about 2 hours. If I were an alien, I would probably visit NYC at that time because every is sleeping or drunk. I went to sleep and when I woke up the next day the object was obviously gone.
