3 to 13 UFOs over Citibank building in Queens NYC in formation for about 20minutes then military hilicopters show up and scare them off

looking out my window in brooklyn, ny over queens - 10/24/07 formation of anywhere from 3 to 13 strange orbs over citibank building in queens. flashing all different colors, disappearing, reappearing, hovering, making no sound, moving back and forth, getting brighter then dimmer, etc. when i first noticed them at around 6:12am there were atleast 13 of them. 3 of them made a triangle formation at one point. i stared at these orbs for about 5 minutes then woke up my girlfriend. when we came back out to look out the window there were about 3 to 9 doing the same thing but not as bright. she was still convinced she was seeing ufos as well though. as soon she walked away one of them got extremely bright and i told her to come back and look and as soon as she looked it dimmed back down. watching the ufos was giving her and i both indescribable and amazing feelings. she went back to bed because she had to work in a couple hours.. a couple minutes go by and then there are only around 3 of them (the others disappeared) then out of nowhere they all started reappearing again. flashing on and off staying in the area around the city bank building in queens. i decided to go up to my roof at that point (about 6:32am). as i got up to the roof i saw and heard in the distance helicopters coming in from opposite directions of the orbs. orbs were in the north/north-west area and helicopters were coming in from the east(long island), and west/south-west(jersey, lower brooklyn, staten island). about 4-8? big, long military helicopters came in and then all the orbs disappeared (i didn't see them all disappear "just like that", but i was looking at the helicopters at this point and then i looked back to see if the orbs were there and they were just gone). i stayed on the roof for not long because the helicopters were kind of intimidating. went back down and looked out the window - orbs still gone, helicopters all over brooklyn, and manhattan. helicopters never went into queens. again, helicopters came in from op! posite d irections of orbs and the helicopters hovered in specific ares for about 20 minutes and then took off. helicopters were gone orbs didn't come back.
