16 or more bright lights near NJ Turpike forming a pattern and reorganizing about 1000 feet off ground

My wife and I were on our way back from a late wedding in NYC driving back on the NJ Turnpike. We were right around exit 10 on the turnpike and we saw a whole bunch of clustered bright lights about 1000 – 2000 feet in the air. We figured these were approaching planes, however, as we got closer they appeared to form some sort of pattern and were kind of hovering. There were about 50 cars stopped on the side of the turnpike. My wife believes that the lights “reorganized” to form a different pattern. I really didn’t see any reorganization happen. We did not stop because my wife was nervous.
