Bright-yellow V-formation spotted in the the night sky over the Arthur Kill

A slow-moving,bright yellow V-formation was spotted over the Arthur Kill. There were at least 15 calls to authorities and as many as 75 cars pulled over on the New Jersey Turnpike to view it. One witness described it as lights the size of volleyballs dwarfing the surrounding stars, and clearly moved in formation. No explanation could be given by authorities as to what it was the witnesses saw in the sky. I did not witness the sighting, but read the article in the newspaper the next morning.
