Location: Staten Island, NY
Duration:~10 minutes
Many bright lights flying over Staten Island.

My father was outside and noticed a bunch of very fast moving lights, flying in a large group, heading towards the Hudson River/Manhattan. By the time I got outside, it appeared to be over and then one by one they just kept coming in a continuous line. Some of them were in a triangle formation while others were flying by themselves all in the same direction. There had to be between 20 and 30 as this went on for about 10-15 minutes. I was able to take two videos before they stopped entirely.

These were definitely not airplanes as they had no blinking lights at all. They were simply circular lights that gave off a glow bright enough to see that whatever they were had been completely surrounded by light.
