a report of the incident that occurred today, December 15th 2000 involving a siting of unknown flying objects over New York City.

At approximately 16:15 hours, I went out to the East facing entrance of my office building for a cigarette break, I was accompanied by one of the Engineers (((name deleted))). We each had a cigarette, he returned inside. We were together about 3 min, a truck pulled up then the driver pulled the truck into the bay and went inside. I was looking up in the sky, as we have a very large crane in front of the building, I was looking at the top of the crane, amazed at its height. (The crane being so tall was folded in half, or collapsed, there were no construction workers around anymore.) Looking East, there is an UPS office, with another larger building a block behind that one. Over the top of the 2nd building, I was what appeared to be an airplane at a very high altitude. It appeared to be moving quite slow. It was small, and appeared to be very high up (miles). It was noticeably black in color. As it moved from East to West, I remarked to myself that it no longer looked like an aircraft, but it looked more like a flock of birds flying; it a appeared to be in a "formation. This was not a "strict" V formation, as it looked sort of, well, like a flock of birds. Then the object stopped moving. It seemed as if it was hovering, or just stopped moving. It remained in the same position for about 2-min, but the shape of the object changed again. It looked more like a small black square, with a small protrusion on its side. I do not recall actually seeing any physical change occur, but it was a different shape that when I first viewed it.
