The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
Walked out to patio noticed what i thought might be helicopters flying in formation, but could not find any strobe lights. however, each craft appeared to have an illuminated ring of lights that appeared solid. the two orange craft led the two red craft at an altitude of approximately 2-3000 feet on a se track. i strained to hear engine sounds but could hear none until a jet over flew my position. the jet was at approximately 10,000 feet. the 4 objects did not seem to be headed to any of the local airports. as i live on the flight paths of newark, teterboro, laguardia and jfk i know the usual routes and the alternate routes when wind direction changes. they finally left my field of vision heading se.
