Shape: Triangle
Duration:1-2 minutes
Double set of pinpoint red/orange steady lights viewed at 200 feet distance, definitely craft.

At 10 PM, I noticed an unusually bright, low altitude, slow moving light over New Jersey (I live near the Delaware River and my apartment looks towards NJ). I thought at first that it must be a plane, but as it got closer, I noticed it wasn't blinking.This is when it gets scary.It got close; about 200 feet away vertically; I saw clearly double row of red/orange lights; they were spaced apart at regular intervals; three on one side, and three on the other, with a secondary set above that; craft was clearly visible! It moved very slowly, maybe 10 mph. It continued it's straight line motion continuing west. In terms of city blocks, it was just one block northward.These lights never blinked. I have been trying to get confirmation from Atlantic City International and Northeast Philadelphia Airport, but noone noticed anything.
