Jersey City, New Jersey - 08-30-11
Last night in New York (Aug 30th) around 10 PM, I noticed from the apartment windows overlooking the Hudson looking out across to Jersey City from Lower Manhattan a hovering, seemingly stationary airborne object over Jersey City.
It had a bright red light flashing regularly underneath. I enjoy aviation and frequently look out of the apartment windows to see what's what.
I knew this wasn't a plane from first glance. I looked at it long and hard because it had an odd bulk to its shape. It seemed too big for a helicopter, and probably therefore was a Blimp.
My feeling was that it was unidentifiable by the naked eye. It made me pretty inquisitive to know what it was. I watched it hardly moving, maybe progressing, but very slowly.
Logic told me it HAD to be a helicopter, so I got on with other stuff. But when after 10 minutes I saw it was still there and had not changed position much, I decided to photograph it.

That's what I meant. It would be a blimp shot from head on which is slowly drifting.
I don't know anything that would look like a round lit up ball with a red blinking light, although, it could be an RC toy of some type.
