Prospect Park Brooklyn V shaped formation of lights in broad daylight!

It was a beautiful clear early fall sunday, not a cloud in the light blue sky. My mother, her boyfriend and myself were sitting in the meadow of prospect park. My mom's boyfriend looked into the sky and pointed out what would have looked like a constellation of stars in a night sky. Six "stars" total, all equidistant from each other in a V-shape. We stared and stared and watched as they remained perfectly equidistant and seemed to float ever higher in the sky for at least 35 minutes. They were much higher than any other aircraft and eventually they disappeared from our field of view. We thought the show was over and we returned to our conversation eagerly trying to discern what we had just saw when to the Northeast two UFO's appeared this time much lower in the sky. They were visibly silver to the naked eye and appeared oval. Again these two objects remained perfectly equidistant and floated ever higher in the sky until they also disappeared from view. After the two objects were gone from view, my mother & her boyfriend decided to head home to their apartment rooftop to see if they could view anything else. I stayed behind, and about ten minutes after they left a silver object shot across the length of the sky. It moved quickly, seemingly lower than a comercial plane and totally silent unlike a helicopter. It moved west to east across the sky (airplanes over the park all fly south to north). It's movement seemed much more fluid than an airplane, I orginally thought it looked like a giant silver bird flapping it's wings. I tried to dismiss the sighting thinking my eyes were just playing tricks on me, when a second object of equal size & color followed along the exact same course! This one, however, changed course about a third of way. It turned sideways and reversed course quickly out of my field of view. When it turned it appeared to have "wings" that were shaped like shark fins but it was hard to tell if these were multi-dementional or flat. After that I finally went home, eager to see if any other sightings had been reported on the news. I saw no other mention of this sighting which I find odd given the amount of people in the park that afternoon and the length of the events. My family and I have never seen anything like this before and my mother's boyfreind who initially pointed out the objects is a very skepticle person, yet we all agree we saw something that afternoon that cannot be explained by today's known science & technology.
