Location: Charubusco, NY
Shape: Light
Duration: approximately all night
bright white light floated through sky as aircraft visibly moved and changed direction then simply pretended to be a star

ok i walked outside witnessed something i knew wasnt a plane float in from north approximately 35-65 thousand feet, floated south moved quickly abruptly turned west in my direction dove down then up, then simply stopped and sat in the sky like a star. the event was first witnessed approximatley 12:30 pm and the (star) sat in the sky all night. what was this... i observed the (star) for 3-4 hrs with binocular subject appeared to be sphere like. only white light. but strangly enough was brighter than most stars was very bright. subject appeared to be between two lightning storms visibility was reduced due to scattered clouds, but the subject floated into place at this late hour, i had a witness look at it right after it started my way, when witness viewed the subject this is when it appeared as a star and didn't move for the rest of the night. I'm involved in an aeronautical Institute, currently passed general aviation with a 90 overall getting my a&p license! . I know aircraft, I witnessed the international space station a few nights ago, I know this subject i witnessed floated in, something wasnt quite right about it, it glowed and floated but moved like.....a laser pointer on the wall... is the only comparison. also witnessed three shooting stars all heading west to east 15 min apart around subject in view. from my viewpoint an airliner flew under subject which helped verify subjects altitude. There are no cities in this area, very wooded area, i may have been the only witness, i watched the sky smoking a cigarette just as subject floated into place. Why is this positioning itself in the sky all night as if it was held in orbit with the earth it moved through sky like a star bright as hell. I'd witnessed something two weeks ago about 2:30 am walking in a bright light floating towards the house simply vanished as I seen it. I'm tired of not understanding these happening, and not being believed by anyone. hopefully this helps! someone else with the ongoing question... i will report from ! now on w hat i see now that i live here. there are no neighbor's and open fields to get a spectacular view of the sky since. thank you this is not a hoax I was very worried when subject moved in the sky, end even more so when it sat in the sky all night, i know the stars the planets and aircraft, and do not understand what els would have done this, i simply got tired and lost site of object with cloud coverage, thank you for listening. maybe you can help me figure out what these are...
