Duration:1-2 minutes
Night of the lunar eclipse, we saw in the sky two gray v-shaped objects flying side-by-side, no lights, no sound.

At approx. 10:15 pm the night of the lunar eclipse, my 13-yr. old son and I were observing the moon inside Central Park (near Strawberry Fields). As he was looking through binoculars at the moon, I was gazing up at the rest of the sky, marveling at the stars (which is a real pleasure when you live in the city). "What the hell is that?" I said out loud as soon as I saw the phenomenon. Up in the sky, about as high as an airplane would fly over Manhattan, at a 45 degree angle to the south away from the eastern-rising moon, were two separate v-shaped solid gray metallic objects flying side by side, not touching, same speed, apex pointed directly due south. There were no lights and no sound. They were clearly visible against the black, cloudless sky with the city lights & moonlight reflecting their v shape and gray color. They moved together, silently, steadily across the sky toward midtown. We lost sight of them in the lights over mid-Manhattan. Whole episode couldn't have lasted longer than two minutes.
