On Friday, August 26, 2011, a group of New Yorkers were startled to see multiple UFOs hovering in the dark night sky above New York City. This UFO sighting took place just one day before Hurricane Irene was expected to wreak havoc on the area.

The witnesses observed at least 8-10 UFOs high above the city. One of the men was able to capture the sight on video. The unidentified flying objects seemed to remain nearly stationary for the entire length of the video, nearly three minutes, but there is some slight movement overhead.

Each UFO seems to be glowing with a bright white light. They appear to be orbs or spheres, and their lights constantly blink or flicker.

The observers can be heard commenting on the audio track of the video. One of them remarks that he initially thought they were helicopters, but the lights appear too close together.
