7 UFOs Christmas Eve Upstate NY Rising Vertically one at a time each 3 bright red lights

While looking at big pole barn with a huge point of lights Christmas display shining on the barn and into the sky Christmas Eve, I turned around just before pulling the electric cord out to turn lights off and noticed 1 bright red-orange light with 2 smaller lights same color on each side of the bigger light in middle. As I continued to stare it slowly vertically continued to rise just above the mountain peak and another exact same 3 lights in the same formation rose right underneath it...

This happened again 7 times until My wife and I saw all 7 crafts slowly bouncing around and flickering in a vertical pattern as if looking directly at the pole barn with all the Christmas display lights on it...I asked my wife to quickly get phone and record...she ran inside and in that time the lower craft and its lights slowly flickered and went out one after the other until only the original craft was left still lit which eventually slowly flickered out as well.....My wife was able to snap a quick picture which we have of the last craft still lit...

It was not a plane, meteor or a balloon. I was driving home from work. It was after midnight. As I was driving, out of nowhere, a large bright ball passed from left to right in the sky in front of me. It wasn't up very high. There was no sound. There was no trail of any kind. It moved in a straight line and disappeared over a line of trees. Very fascinating to say the least

9 Orangeish Glowing Dots In Albany

9 orangeish (or a single object) in the sky during the day.

I was walking across the street in downtown Albany, NY and was looking at the building architectures. I saw a sign that I thought was interesting against the blue sky. That’s when I noticed an odd formation in the sky. It was a number of orangish dots, eight in a circle and one in the center (after looking at my photo). I couldn’t tell if it was a single object or nine objects together in unison.

There wasn’t a lot of clouds in the sky, a few. So the formation (or object) didn’t stand out like a plane in the sky, but you could definitely see it against the blue sky. The dots were a tad faint, almost like they were glowing, but very lightly. I don’t want to say they were pulsating, but they did come across as glowing.

It had some rotation. Again, not sure if it was a single object in the sky or nine individual objects, but they seemed to move in unison. The rotation was very slow, but it was enough to notice that there was movement.

I quickly pulled out my camera and managed to take a single photo. I tried to take a video, but as I switched to video on my phone, the object(s) quickly moved to the upward towards the left and then was gone.
