Brian, I just read the report of a sighting on the L.I.E. on Feb. 9th. I have two teenaged grandchildren who independently witnessed something unusual in the sky above the Borough Park section of Brooklyn a couple of nights later. On Thursday Feb. 12th at approx. 8:00 pm, my thirteen year old grand-daughter and a group of her friends observed three or four enormous orange lights in the sky moving in various formations, sometimes in unison, sometimes seemingly separately, and their source apparently changed altitude at various points, as well. This lasted for over an hour

At around 9:00 pm, her sixteen year old brother and his friends observed the same phenomena five or six blocks away. They were astounded by what they saw, and said that it was unlike any other such lights they had ever encountered. There was absolutely no sound. When I suggested that it might have been a police helicopter in the clouds, both youngsters rejected this explanation. The size of the lights alone was much greater than those of any such ordinary craft.

Have you received any similar reports of this event?
