"U" shaped formation of 15-20 yellow lights flew from southward above new york city at approximately 11pm on Monday October 2, 2006

I was standing on the roof of an apartment building on Orchard Street in Manhattan, New York City. I noticed approximately 15-20 yellow lights in a u formation flying above. I was facing West, downtown New York City was to my left. The Empire State building was to my right. The formation continued above me and slowly changed formation. It was the top half of a heart formation. There were many airplanes circling the city. The formation of lights was approximately 4 times the width of the aircrafts that I saw around the city. The formation continued southward towards the moon. I ran downstairs one flight to grab a friend. By the time I got back up to the roof the lights had disappeared. We could only see the normal aircrafts in the sky.
