A birdlike object or missile became an orb, joined other orbs, before ascending and disappearing.

On Friday April 17, 2015-today in fact, at first I saw an object that looked like a bird flying up in the air not too far from a jet, which I assume was on a flight path for a landing at either JFK or LaGuardia airport nearby.

It was 5:55 pm, sunny, and most people in suburbia here on Long Island were on their way home from work.

What caught my attention first was the fact that the object was up so high.

And the next fact was that although it appeared bird like, it was traveling at a high rate of speed. It looked white at first then silver.

In fact, it was going faster than the jet! It had descended and as I watched (with my prescription sunglasses on), from my car in a parking field, the object went from a northeasterly direction on my right towards the west on my left.

I grabbed for my phone to take a photo but decided to keep watching instead-the object became an orb joining another orb that spun around it. The two continued on then met up with another 3 or 4 orbs encircling them before ascending and disappearing! This was near Roosevelt Field, Long Island, NY. A Marines base is nearby.

Is this military? Does the FAA know about this, I'm a former newspaper reporter and editor.
