|2 hovering bright lights, no sound, over NY. Saw manta ray or triangle object flying very slow,whooshing sound
My sister and I were in the driveway getting out of our car going into the house. I noticed 2 bright white balls of light hovering over the tree tops about a quarter mile away.There was no noise. We couldn't figure out what they were, so we walked across the road and all over the front lawn and driveway trying to get a better look.
We saw one of the lights shoot down a pulsing like red ray and white lights also flashed and moved around at the same time. It also looked like a huge beam of white light was coming down from underneath both of them.
This went on for 3-4 minutes. All the while these 2 things stayed absolutely still and made no noise at all. As soon as we both took out our camera phones and took a picture, both lights immediately brightened and became much larger. It was as if they saw us and were talking to each other somehow.
Then one started slowly moving toward us while the other one slowly moved off to the side and rose up a little higher. We watched this light move ever so slowly toward us. It flew directly over our heads as if in slow motion. It was so low and only made a low whooshing like sound. It was like a manta ray shape or some kind of rounded triangle. It was shiny, black metallic like. The underside had some kind of square indentations, like a grid almost. There was a red flashing light in front and 2 white flashing strobe lights in the back. It had 3 white lights underneath toward the back of it. On each side were 2 rocket like things that were a lighter color like gray.
We watched both of these things fly ever so slowly and quietly until we couldn't see them over the mountains. We looked around for 1-2 minutes then heard a very low noise unlike any plane or helicopter. We turned and saw the same 2 bright lights hovering in the same exact spots! By now we were extremely freaked out so we woke up our brother.
We all live near a military airport base so we are used to different aircraft and how they sound. The 3 of us watched these things for a few minutes silently hover above the tree tops. When my brother shined a flashlight toward them they did the same thing. The light immediately became larger and brightened and it started to move toward us. Only this time it was up a little higher and off to the side of us. The other one rose up and over and hovered behind the tree tops. We couldn't see it clearly like the first time, but I did manage to get a few seconds of it on video tape-mainly the rear lights. We are in our 30's, have children and jobs. We are regular people who saw something strange in the sky that night. I have been searching the internet for info and similar reports.
