Star bright/white dots - over Brooklyn Prospect Park. 15 August 2019 (7pm / 19:00)

The event occurred yesterday at 7pm in prospect park Brooklyn. I was in the park with my wife and daughter and laying on my back staring up the swallows flying high above.

A small white dot caught my attention (a small star bright light) much higher than commercial airline flights seem to be and way higher than the swallows above.

At first I thought nothing of it as it could be something reflecting light from the sun, but the object started to move to the left. After it moved it really caught my attention and a few seconds just stopped. After the obeject had stopped moving, two more lights (or star bright dots) appeared directly underneath the original object. It was in perfect vertical straight line underneath the original dot and totaled three lights.

The three lights all proceeded to move left again and after a few seconds of following the dots/stars I tried to alert my wife and point out the general direction. In this time more had appeared sporadically (in no formation or visibly noticeable) formation. The number grew till around 7 stars could be seen and spaces all over the area of sky. The whole event lasted around 2 minutes and my wife (to my frustartition) didnít managed to track or witness it. Iím actually sad that I alone witnessed it and would have even tried to contact a complete stranger to highlight what I was witnessing! I would honestly love to know if any sighting (other than mine) happened and up till yesterday would have literally laughed at anyone telling me they had witnessed something extra ordinary or a UFO.

This really changed for me yesterday and tried in all ways to rantionalize and explain what it could have been, both civilian and military wise.

Hope to hear from you back and all the best.
