Paint on Headlight

I'm assuming it was at work but I don't know for sure but I noticed the other day that there is a big drop of black paint on my headlight lens. Any idea how to get it off without scratching the lens?

So just grab a rag and some thinner and go to town?

Uh yea, dampen the rag with the thinner though, be careful not to get it on your car... I don't think it will remove the paint, I spilled acetone on my car once and it did nothing... Still, be very careful.

I would take the headlight off the car first as not to accidentally drop or wipe paint thinner on the car.
