Shape: Sphere

brilliantly yellow ball-like shape moving way high in sky, with short white smoke behind that disappeared

Spotted from a hill in Central Park off of 70's streets. Intense yellow light, a kind of ball of it, definitely not plane or helicopter; moved very high up across sky, slowly at same pace; behind it was a short trail of white smoke similar to skywriting.

I can't answer "characteristics" below, none of them apply. It had a trail but didn't leave a trail. Nothing else appeared to be in the sky.

Note that I calculated time via camera shots (on the ground only) & my camera may be off by 1 hr. Hence it probably was 6:41 pm. (18:41).
