Location: Franklin, NJ
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
Two blinking lights flying impossibly close to each other seem to stand still before flying off in different directions.

My boyfriend and I were looking at the sky because we noticed how bright the stars were that night. We saw what we thought were two airplanes in the sky directly above us. It was strange because they were flying WAY too close to each other. Usually the airplanes I see leave some lead time between their flight path but these two lights were one directly behind the other. It seemed impossible. After we noticed them they appeared stop for a second and then the one in front started moving while the second one didnt seem to move. I remember that my boyfriend looked at me and said - is it not moving or is it me? As we continued to watch and the second light started to move but now in a totally different flight path. I continued to watch and thought my eyes were playing tricks on me because I thought I saw was sparks coming from the tail of the plane. I kept blinking my eyes to try to focus on what I was seeing. I watched until I didnt see them any more. A couple things to note are there was absolutely no sound which is unusual for planes we usually see/hear in our area and the lights were blinking white, red and green which to me looked like airplane lights. I thought it was worth reporting.
