two fast spheres orange in color were moving north by northwest over Brooklyn at 23:00 hours on May 20th 2016.

On 5th avenue and 16th street looking east by southeast there was two orange orbs moving at twice the speed of the usual aircraft in the sky heading north by northwest. The first one was almost at 23:00 on the hour, the second was a few minutes later at 23:05.

There was also a high altitude jet moving north, a commercial jet moving west towards newark at a lower altitude and a jet coming in from the south moving towards JFK or Laguaria airport.
