Sept. 2013 Sunset Park sighting Debunked..

In response to sighting on this forum in Sunset Park Brooklyn on 9/28/13, of 3 white lights moving erratically behind clouds.

I saw the same thing. It is an advertisement for a dance club in Long island City Queens. They use a type of L.E.D. spotlight which illuminates the clouds causing an illusion that the light is coming from behind the clouds. They also put off very little, if any beam. L.E.D. lights have a very long range, so they can appear to be moving several miles very quickly. These particular lights can be seen on most Friday and Saturday nights when it is cloudy. They are visable anywhere from Brooklyn to almost the South Bronx.

Sorry! I was quite perplexed myself at first. I was a little Bummed when I found out. They are weird though!
