Circle of slowly strobbing white lights seen over St Lawrence River near Ogdensburg/Prescott International Bridge

On Friday May 26, 2000 @ 11:15pm I was sitting in my living room with the lights off, looking out the window at the lights from the international bridge to Canada. I noticed over the St. Lawrence River, approximately 200-300 yards from my house and above the tree tops, a circle of dim white lights(approx. 15 lights) strobbing slowly in a counter clockwise direction. Sometimes the shaped changed from a circle of lights to a oval shape of lights. I watched it for a few minutes then got my son and husband. Together we watched it from an open window. No noise was heard. After approximately 5 min I called my neighbor who lives below me directly on the water. My neighbor also saw it at the same time then all of a sudden it disappeared, leaving no trial. My neighbor said it was about 1/3 of the way over the river which is about 1 mile wide. I sat up for the next 1 1/2 hours watching but it never returned.
