Location: Woodside, NY
Shape: Oval
Duration:10 minutes
We saw a large, oval bright blue light in the sky that stayed for about 10 minutes.

My boyfriend and I were walking in a North East Direction when I noticed a strange light in the sky. It was dark and cloudy outside, but there was an unusual color in the sky, what looked like a purple, blue oval shaped light. The object was large, about the size a hand held at arm's length and hidden behind clouds.

At first we speculated that it could be a spotlight, but there was no ray coming from the ground leading up and clouds moved in front of the light, obscuring our vision of the object, leading me to believe that it could be a large, bright object that was far away.

We watched and took several pictures and walked in the direction of the light. When taking the last pictures, my phone camera acted strangely, with the rays of light coming from other lit objects going from the normal, scattered pattern to a straight up and down pattern, stopping at the lit object. After 10 minutes, the light disappeared.
