I was driving Mass Pike 90 westbound 1 min before exit 5 at 9:36 pm, I saw several what appeared to be helicopter like at first objects taking off or coming into view in the distance. I thought not much of it until I saw 7 or more of them. Still not alarmed I just thought wow that is quite a few of them.

I was with my kids and talking on the phone so i kept driving. Then, after looking back up the lights had become small orange/yellowish contained orb like objects and had organized themselves into a near arch looking patten but not perfect symmetry. There were lined up directly with the highway. I was swearing into the phone(which I DON'T DO) Because I couldn't believe what I was seeing. People on the highway were all honking their horns so i know others were seeing this.

As is approached me I eventually was under and going past it. As they were close to me, I would describe the orange/yellowish objects almost as if they were perfect self contained fireballs. I looked to the left as I passed and there was an object, very very dark black following just behind to the left. I can't tell you how eerie it is to see something appear that black against an already night sky. It was strange to say the least. I tried in every way to rationalize it I could not. I pulled over off the exit and got out of my car to look up and process what I just saw.

We DO live very close to the military base. I have lived here my whole life and I can say to you not one person familiar with military craft would be able to identify these things. The defied any shape and color of anything I have seen. The black object was the most obviously deep black object you have ever seen and odd/scary to see.
