Duration:10 minutes
An enormous purple/indigo oval shaped light seen peering through the clouds.

My girlfriend pointed out an odd color in the sky. As I observed the area, I saw a light, purple or indigo color, that was fading in and out through the clouds. We decided to walk towards the shape, in a North East direction to get a better view and as I kept watching, it appeared to be a large oval shape the size of my hand at arms distance.

We stopped by the Brooklyn Queens Expressway at 65th Street near a park where where our view was unobstructed and at that point we saw a airplane fly under it.

It was a mesmerizing sight to see the plane fly under the object, but have none of the blue rays reflect on it, which led me to believe the object was very far away.

Another exceptional observation was to consider the scale of the shape compared to plane. The plane appeared to be the size of an ant compared to the object which gave me a sense that the shape was a lot further and a lot larger than the plane. Soon after the plane flew by, the object disappeared.
