12 brilliant silver orbs surge from the cloud cover

I was traveling south on Route 36 (Ocean Avenue) from the vicinity of Sandy Hook, NJ. It was approximately 2:30 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon with overcast skies. While driving, I happened to glance out my driver's side window at the sky over the ocean. At the instant I looked at the sky, I observed approximately 12 orbs of the brightest silver light I have ever seen. I could only describe the luminosity as being like that of liquid mercury--only many times brighter--and pulsating. These bright lights appeared to surge out of the cloud cover and pulsate in a formation of 3 stacked rows. The size of each orb was larger than a marble but smaller than a golf ball--if held at arm's length. Almost as quickly as the orbs appeared, they disappeared.
