Shape: Oval
Duration:10 seconds
7 brightly illuminated elliptical discs racing uniformly across the night sky were seen moving NNW to SSE equally spaced apart.

While at the Whitestone Drive-In movie theater (Hutchinson River Pkwy @ Cross Bronx Expwy) in 1958 or 1959 with both of my parents witnessing, my father drew our attention to 7 self illuminated elliptical discs high in the night sky moving very fast in single file uniformly across the night sky. They had to be thousands of feet high, were equally spaced apart and moving fast enough where it could only be viewed for approximately 10 seconds or so.

The New York Daily News the next day reported many eyewitnesses who telephoned various police departments as well as the newspapers. The event was unmistakeable.

I was 9 or 10 yrs old at the time. I have never witnessed anything closly resembling that event before or since!
