Location: New York City/Brooklyn, NY
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:30-40 sec
saw object flying without sound about 2-3 hundred feet above water next to Varrazano Bridge

While returing home from the local gym with my son last night I glanced over at the bridge (as I always do for its so lovely at night) and I noticed a pattern of light shaped like a backwards "C" with one small light in front of the main formation. This made me look harder due the fact that it was so low and not on the usuaul flight path of the planes coming from the New Jersey Airport (the flight path brings the planes straight towards my house not from the side as this thing flew). I paused and looked closer and noticed as it passed it blocked the takeoff lights of the planes from a distance and the treeline on Staten Island. I yelled to my 7 year old son to look and he stated he saw it too. We watched as it flew over the horizon towards Coney Island. I see planes, traffic-copters nightly around here but this was definately diffrent. I explained the event to my wife and she stated I was visibly shaken.
