I was walking along the water at ceasar's bay shopping center in brooklyn (see provided address) around 11:45 pm the verizano bridge was just to the right. i was looking over new york harbor (west), when i noticed 4-5 bright steady lights in unusual pattern hovering in the distance (see picture) the lights were all the same brightness, they did not waver, and they maintained there formation consistently. at first i thought they were approaching aircraft, but i watched for about 20 minutes, and the lights did not come closer, or more distant, or change their formation at all, that is what made me think they were unusual, they were not approaching, or flying away, but maintaining there position. i marveled at it for about 20 minutes, took pictures, and just left. the only thing i can think is they would be hovering helicopters, but why would the formation not change at all during the twenty minutes i watched? my feelings were just i marveled at how unmoving and consistent they were.
