odd looking flashing orb above ground zero-World Trade Center & triangle craft with non-blinking white lights on each corner

My apartment is facing towards the world trade area , so I actually have a good panoramic view of the city hall skyline (verizon building to police headquarters)- the skies being clear. It's around 8pm and I thought, I was looking at a star but, I use a pair of binoculars(20x50)- I'm on the 10th floor. To the northwest, I see an object that looked like a satellite but, the object stopped right above Ground zero right next to the millenium hotel on chambers street. As I looked using my binoculars, there wasn't any sound or tail section(what helicopters have); it was more rectangular-bottle shaped and there were 4 flashing red lights in sequence on both sides, one blue light on each side & either a reflection of white light(non-blinking) on the rest of the object. The object would go suddenly go straight up, then down as well as fly left to right instantly without tilting. After, 1 hour & 57 minutes the object went northwest again, the lights started to fade. The other objects(non-blinking white lights)being I counted 5 surrouding another object shaped in a perfect triangle with white non-blinking lights on each corner of the object. There was a foggish haze around all the objects except the 1 flashing object near the world trade center. As, I checked again visually & the use of the binoculars around 10pm eastern time, all the objects aren't there at all.
