I saw 6 glowing orbs lining up in different formations witin a 2 hour period over Long Island Sound.

On 10/11/08, at 7pm on a Saturday evening, I was relaxing at Seaside Park in Bridgeport, Ct. As I gazed out over Long Island sound, looking southeast toward Port Jefferson, NY, I noticed 6 bright lights hovering over the Port Jefferson area. The lights resembled glowing orbs, and appeared to be about 500 feet above the horizon. These orbs were fading and then glowing, moving up and down, and from side to side. I watched for over 1 hour as the orbs lined up to change position to set up different formations. After about 1+1/2 hours, 3 of the orbs faded and disappeared from view. The remaining 3 orbs formed a straight line, and then 1 more also faded from view. After about 20 minutes, the last 2 lights faded away as well, leaving a clear sky, and only the stars remained.
