when I was about 14, me and about 6 friends were playing hide and seek at night with flashlights at our cabin in a very rural area of western new york. Approaching from the west we noticed a V shaped formation of yellow glowing discs, maybe 7 or 9, which silently glided above us continuing toward the east. When they were directly above, one of the friends with a flashlight started shining it upward toward them, and I freaked out thinking they were going to come down. After they passed (it took maybe 20 to 30 seconds) we ran into the cabin to tell the adults, they just said it was probably an airplane.... I've seen thousands of airplanes at night and this wasn't even remotely close to what an airplane looks like.
