Shape: Circle
Duration:10 minutes
I work at the ((hotel name deleted)) on Long Island, New York. I have been working there for about 8 or 9 months now. I have access to the roof which is 10 stories off the ground. The building is placed on high ground so you get a great view of Long Island, from the airports to hospitals to the beach were I had my sighting. I always go up there to smoke my cigarettes, I looked toward Robert Moses Beach too look at the lighthouse you can see it well at night. Just a little to the right, right above the horizon i notice these 5 bright redish orange colored lights staying still in the sky but they all would fade away and re appear in a new location but all in the same general area never moving far from each other. When the lights were visible they never moved they stood still and only faded away and faded back in a new location.

At this point I called my girl friends father to tell him what I was seeing becuase he has had sightings himself. For about 5 mintues the lights just kept doing the fading thing then i noticed only 4 lights were visible the 5th never came back from fading out. The 4 lights stopped fading away and stood still but in 2 groups of 2. Two of them sat still right next to each other and the other 2 did too but farther from the other two. They stayed like this for about 2-3 mintues then started the random fade thing once more. As they did this the 4th didnt come back then the 3rd and so on till there was 1 light left fading away and coming back then it was gone. It faded and never came back. I kept looking at the sky but none came back.

I went back down to the lobby and wrote it all down as I saw it. I went back up 15 minutes later to see if I would see anything again, they were still gone but instead there were many airplanes patroling the same exact area of the sky about 8-9 planes. I've been up there countless times and have never once seen anything like that up there or in my life. I've see airplanes take off from the airport at the same spot many times and these were no airplanes. I've also never seen airplanes in a group like that in that area which also makes me think they weren't commerical passenger planes but perhaps military, investigating what I had just seen. These lights were bigger then the flashing lights of an airplane. You can also make out each individual light, these lights were mixed together an orange red color and they never blinked like an airplane but they twinkled like stars do. What I saw was no earth craft, this was something I've never seen before.
