Location: Staten Island, NY
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 5-10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
2 bright spheres flying strange patterns.

I was sitting in my home office and my desk is right in front of my window. Something caught my attention so I looked up. There's an airport nearby, so I'm constantly seeing planes, but this was unlike anything I've seen before.

Two spherical objects in the distance, probably silver in color (could not tell if it was the light reflecting off of it or if IT was shining light) where flying very strange patterns. There is no commercial flying object that can fly these sort of patterns, of this I am certain. The flying patterns were not even describable. They were almost zig-zaggy in nature, with weird circling patterns. This all lasted about 5-10 seconds and they suddenly just disappeared from the sky!

I don't think it was birds because these objects looked like they were much, much higher than commercial airlines fly, and plus, they just didn't look like any bird I know. Maybe it was some kind of space event (meteors, shooting stars, etc)? I don't know. It was definitely something weird.

Here's the thing though... about 10 years earlier, I saw something similar with my family while sitting in my backyard. Except at that time there were far more than 2 of them, and the event lasted a little longer than 5-10 seconds. Probably a couple of minutes, and then was followed by sighting of several military aircraft (jets) in the area.
