5 bright white lights seen over North Jersey

On Saturday, August 24th, 2013, my wife noticed something in the northern sky and called my attention to it. There were a series of 5 lights in the sky in a formation that was a complete circle bot not quite round. The lights stayed in formation and were bright and easily visable in a clear sky and then gradually faded away.

One light stayed longer than the others before it also faded away.

We are in a very high traffic area for planes with 5 major airports nearby. These lights were not planes. No craft that I know of can hover at the height of these lights. Also, each of the lights gradually faded away as if they were going farther and farther away until they could not be seen any more.
