I'm a School Counselor in a public high school. I was driving on the NJ Garden State Parkway going south around 3:00PM. Around 3:10 I noticed a very bright object in the sky, it looked like descending shooting star or a meteor.. it was lingering in the sky but slowly descending. Soon after, I noticed two additional bright balls in the sky nearby. They were all near each other. I actually called the Brick, NJ police station at 3:13 PM to ask whether others were reporting three bright objects next to each other in the sky. The operator said that if it was on the Parkway it would State Police jurisdiction, however I was driving and was unable to look up the phone number. The bright balls hovered near each other and slowly moved in docent directions. I was able to follow two of them in the sky for about 20 minutes. I was able to take a few videos and photos of the objects.
