Location: Massapequa, NY
Shape: Oval
Duration:15 seconds
Southwest, a somewhat "left-parenthesis"-shaped formation of 10-15 oval-shaped silvery/white objects moving from southwest to southeast down over the horizon. Had Binoculars, as I was looking for the Leonids a night late, and the objects were long and thin, horizontal. Objects moved at a steady pace until they dissappeared out of view behind a house, moving lower on the horizon. These did NOT appear to be meteorites at all. The formation and objects remained unchanged for the 15 or so secodns I saw them moving and they appeared to be in the very upper atmosphere or out of it completely. Frickin' weird looking, and a bit eerie, basically because they were so nondescript and moved slower than meteorites I've seen, but faster than jets I've seen.
