Location: New York City (Brooklyn; Williamsburg), NY
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Saw 12 bright lights come from Jersey and over Brooklyn where they disappeared by the moon.

Sitting on a rooftop in Williamsburg with a friend we noticed a light leave the "ground" like area in what looked like New Jersey and fly over Midtown Manhattan and over Brooklyn.

The light was like 10x brighter than a plane light, if a plane light looks 1cm this looked like an inch. As the first one "took off" from Jersey another one was about 2 seconds behind it, and so on, until 12 lights were flying through the air.

That night the moon was directly over Williamsburg and the lights were heading directly towards it, as they got there they disappeared.

I was trying to figure out if it was a bunch of planes but they seemed to fly way too close together and they were disappearing - not exactly a plane behavior. I remember thinking I should record it on my phone, take a picture, do SOMETHING to record this, but I was memorized and worried if I looked away I would miss something.

Not sure why I'm writing about this years later but it's stayed with me. I can still see it.
