Posted: 1/10/2014
Location: New York City (Queens; Flushing), NY
Shape: Oval
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: The object left a trail
orange stingray-shaped object, followed by 2 orange globes

It was a clear night, and there were several stars out. I saw what looked like a Roman candle rise up into the sky. I had been looking southeast. The object did not dissipate into the air, but instead, started to fly north, in the eastern sky. It looked like a flaming orange stingray. For a moment I thought it was a plane on fire. It continued on and finally disappeared behind a building. It seemed to be flying at the same speed as a regular airplane. A few seconds later, I saw an orange globe flying from south to north. This one did not rise up from the same spot as the first one. It went over the building, and immediately after, another one followed. These two were also flying at airplane speed. I do not recall if I heard any sounds coming from these objects.
