St. Patrick's Day 1987 - Lights over the Bronx, NY

St. Patrick's day, Bedford Park section of the Bronx. Walking across a large street (205 St.) I looked up and saw a perfect v-shaped formation of brilliant lights. It moved slowly and silently and the lights looked like they were attached to something or affixed to eachother. The lights changed color in perfect unison and in almost a "swirling" fashion. It was SW of where we were walking and it appeared to be huge. It was stunning and I immediately felt emotional looking at it. My friends looked at it after I yelled out. They were reluctant to talk about it then or afterward. There was a blurb on the 11:00 local news that night due to numerous calls about lights in the sky. They said they were told (by whom I'm not sure) that it was a formation of aircraft. The explanation didn't make sense then and it still doesn't. I'm hoping someone else out there saw it.
