9 orangeish (or a single object) in the sky during the day.

I was walking across the street in downtown Albany, NY and was looking at the building architectures. I saw a sign that I thought was interesting against the blue sky. That’s when I noticed an odd formation in the sky. It was a number of orangish dots, eight in a circle and one in the center (after looking at my photo). I couldn’t tell if it was a single object or nine objects together in unison.

There wasn’t a lot of clouds in the sky, a few. So the formation (or object) didn’t stand out like a plane in the sky, but you could definitely see it against the blue sky. The dots were a tad faint, almost like they were glowing, but very lightly. I don’t want to say they were pulsating, but they did come across as glowing.

It had some rotation. Again, not sure if it was a single object in the sky or nine individual objects, but they seemed to move in unison. The rotation was very slow, but it was enough to notice that there was movement.

I quickly pulled out my camera and managed to take a single photo. I tried to take a video, but as I switched over to video on my phone, the object(s) quickly moved to the upward towards the left and then was gone.
