Looks like the rear of the Colonie Mall. if it is, the objects would be heading west in my direction if i got my bearings straight and have the right mall.

Cool pic, it could be light glare but I prefere to leave possibilities open untilnproven otherwise. It would seem New York is a bit of a hot bed givin all the recent sightings.

I remember as child reading a story in the local paper about a young couple having seem a UFO over the lake I happend to be on yesterday. I recall that in the story it was winter, the lake was frozen over and they were skating on the lake at night.

I couldn't tell you the date as this was back in the sixties. But I remember the story vividly. It wasnthe first.story to peak my interest in the subject of ufolgy.

Edit to add all.these sightings could be part of the reason for seeing increased military in areas seldom ever seen.

Actually, the 4 lights are indeed a reflection inside the optics of your iphone4.:

A similar example explained here back in 2011: HERE

I live just north of Albany, near Saratoga. I was out mowing yesterday, Sunday, and I thought that I saw chemtrails to the southwest but I was not sure. I guess that maybe I did.

I'll keep an eye to the sky tonight also.

Dunno what to say about your friend, wish i could have seen it. Is he totally sure its not spotlights? If the air is really really clear you could have a spotlight without a beam.

What you saw sounds like a stealth plane. Theyre very quiet for a plane. however, theyre usually black sp you dont see them at night....but we do have cloaking technology...

Actually it does line up. The 4 lights you are seeing reflected are the 4 light elements in the light post closest to you. Each light post has 4 bright lights on it....THAT is what is being reflected. Just the closest post.

He's not the type of person who is generaly givin to flights of fancy and for him to call me at three in the morning and wake me up is unheard of. So please trust me when I say his accounting of what was taking place is sincere.

What I personly saw took place yesterday afternoon, not in the evening or late at night. It was broed daylight, approx. 2:30 in the afternoon with mostly clear skies. For some reason my view was quite lengthly givin the hilly surrounding terrain but my view probably covered 25 miles or better. As I stated earlier this was a low elevation probably between 5 to 8 thousand foot elevation.

I live in Albany.

About a week ago I saw a flying craft that was moving in a strange way, and appeared to have three lights below the body in a tripod like fashion. I can't be sure that it wasn't an illusion, but it caught my attention. This happened around 3AM.

Twice in the last three nights I've seen a light moving in a circular motion over my neighborhood and could not pin point a source. It was low to the ground and "ghostlike." It was white and acted sort of like the circling arm on a radar. Also, could have been some type of illusion/easily explained.

Just found it interesting that three anomalies happen in a week...

Seems to be a lot of sightings recently.
Just look at the reports on mufon the last couple of days.

Your description sounds pretty detailed for just an illusion. Could there have been any other factors involved that would make you think they were an illusion, no judgement on my part just curious. Not many people are up at 3 am.

Here in the UK a girl-friend of mine sent me this pic, she rang me afterwards scared as hell saying she was smoking on the balcony overlooking the power station, a bright light appeared she said it was big, but I cant really tell judging by the picture she sent me, the red lights on the right are power station lights, and the power station towers that these lights are on are pretty BIG.. so the intensity of light were as bright as the ones on the power station,

she further said that the light get going dim and then bright, like glowing, then within a second it shot off in an angle, I said, could it a plane or helicopter or something? she replied I may be a girl but I am not that stupid to think planes or helicopters can travel at that kind of speed. so point taken, she text me saying it returned later for a few brief moments and then it just faded out...

sorry the pic os crappy, but what do you expect at night time holding a camera phone.. at least I have a pic.

the middle light, and the red lights on the right are the power station lights, the towers are taller than the cooling towers themselves, the huge chimney looking that that the UK has. click on the image to see the red tower lights,

also I did ask about any noises, but she said no, it was calm this was around 12:00am UK time

following from the post I just added with the pic and In reply to the OP's post, I am living near London, and heathrow airport is not far from here, I was having a cigarette, then skies lit up like lightning, this was on Friday night around 11, but they flashing lights, I see planes flying over all the time and but non flashed as bright as this, it was pretty cloudy, couldnt see what it was but it illuminated the clouds, I thought it was a plane but again it couldnt be, as if the landing lights have been put on but in a flashing mannor, but landing lights do not face directly downwards right? they face down towards the front like a cars headlights on the road, it was so bright I thought it was lightning or something, I went to the street to see if I can catch a better glimpse but it was gone by the time i opened that damn gate to get out! so in my experience, it was bright white light, flashing, it was so bright it lit up the skies like a lightning bolt would do in the clouds. it was a very cool experience.

also it did sounded like a plane, but it wasn't, just sounded like engines, but there was no rumble if you get me once it got away, you normally hear a thundery rumbling noise, or a squealing/whining noise from the engines as a plane flies by, I am also thinking it was pretty low? either flying pretty low or the lights were extremely bright..

Just here to say I'm following this thread,
It's checking out pretty fascinating on my Triangle UFO obsession.
My sister's in Willamsburg so I asked her to look up occasionally .
So yeah, love the giant triangle sightings.
I think these craft are Ours (USA), and are really really big
but I bet they have much smaller ones as well.
Some witnesses say up to a mile between lights?

I say with no evidence they are made of Graphene and Aerogel,
just because they are so big.
I also think the shell is a big ol' screen that can project what's behind it
to the sides being viewed from the ground.
And since it's a screen it can move lights all around
big ones small ones etc. However, along the edges,
especially in the 3 corner triangle position, people report a fiery
orange, beautiful, undulating light, thats brilliant, but doesn't hurt the eyes.

These have me fascinated and I have followed stories since Phoenix in 97.
Here are some
famous Triangles that I think look and act similar below.
www.youtube.com...
Smaller Triangle version?
www.youtube.com...
And a version of a giant Triangle, that's working it's screen hard.
And no these are not night jumping paratroopers.
These are still. As in no fluctuations.
I remember the SyFy show, Fact or Faked, did a story on this El Paso
sighting and a couple interesting things happened.
First the Golden Knights, an Army expo parachuting team,
claimed it was them practicing. ...
you know like they do over heavily populated cities, at night, with no warning.
And they admitted this fast. The military was like Yep! We goofed!! Sorry it was Us!
This would make sense if they were indeed paratroopers because it would help with
potential lawsuits from people realizing there were paratroopers floating over their homes
with powerful spark emitters.

I'm gonna rant a bit

So the Fact or Faked team aired their video of paratroopers doing what the UFO did
(but not really) & proclaimed abruptly, as the show ended, "Yep thats definitely the explanation".
"The Golden Knights." "You're welcome."

I was like WTF? wait wait wait.... I watched and they simply, and obviously,
froze the video and used a still just when the troopers got into a (fleeting)Triangular position
And it was obviously just for a second or two.. (if someone says "any 3 points in the sky
make a triangle" I'll smack them with an iPad playing videos of triangle UFO's one after another)

Anyway ...Fact or faked ended their show with this video still
and said case closed. They never continued the video.
So blah blah, this is why I speculate wildly and say triangles are military.
Fact or Faked dismissed it in a lame haphazard way and got seemingly quick help from an extremely
talented group of professional sky divers with just the right gear.
Hmm..maybe Golden Knights in civilian garb? And yeah, they are incredibly talented
paratroopers, just not talented enough to freeze in mid-air.
Anyway if as much work went into the investigation as the recreation, I'd be a little happier.
But I still wouldn't buy their lame explanation. How about playing the whole tape of the jump Fact or Faked?
Sorry I went a little nuts.
Told you I'm into Triangles.
