|Darting lights over NYC on 12/29/01
On 12/29/01 into 12/30/01 about midnight the moon was very bright. It just happened that the restaurant we were leaving faced the moon perfectly. We all stopped to look at the moon & stars. There were about 8 of us looking at it when what we thought were stars ,what we were looking at started to dart and shoot all over the sky. There were so many!. Some lined up in order and then just went off in their own direction. just to zip back nd forth. Others looked like they were playing a game of cat & mouse. They were darting all over the sky for the longest. It was so strange that I ran back into the restaurant and called the people inside out to see it. We were all in shock and disblief..
