Object Flight Path
I was driving with a friend on Newark-Pompton Turnpike in Riverdale towards Hamburg Turnpike at about 9:45 or 9:50 PM on Saturday, 7/5/14. As we were approaching the traffic light at that intersection, we saw in the distance in the sky above tree top level, what looked like two orange circles. They were diagonal in distance to each other with one being upper left. As we approached the traffic light and then stopped due to it being a red light, the objects did not move, flash or anything. They stayed stationary. The distance between them also did not change. There were other stars twinkling in the sky and planes moving and they did not look like any of those and they were not the warning lights atop towers which are red. The objects were bigger and the color different than the stars and planes which is why we noticed them. From our distance, they were not chinese lanterns from July 4th fireworks. The traffic light changed so we continued on Hamburg Turnpike North and then decided to use a star gazer app to see if they were stars or planets or satellites which they weren't. We then turned around and went back (probably within 3 minutes) and they were gone from where we saw them and we could not see where they went.
