UFO Sighting in Avalon, New Jersey on 2017-06-24 22:12:00 - Saw 15 lights flying overhead from sw to ne headed over atlantic ocean. no noise.

My wife and i returned to our beach house in avalon, nj, after dinner on saturday, june 24.Our address there is 3664 dune drive, two blocks from the ocean. when i got out of the car, i looked up at the sky and saw three objects the size of a bright planet flying from sw to ne, headed out over the ocean. they were in formation, and did not change positions relative to one another. they flew rather slowly -- these were not streaks of light. several seconds later, four more identical objects, also in formation, flew over. then, more objects flew over, one-by-one. they kept coming until we finally counted a total of 15. they were almost directly overhead -- it's hard to say what angle. they flew straight, did not wobble, ascend or descend, and they were silent. nothing about them suggested they might be airplanes or helicopters. no noise, strobe lights, etc. i checked my watch when we saw the first group of three, and it was 10:12 p.M. the entire episode lasted a few minutes. we were baffled by what we saw. we know that dover air force base is situated in delaware, southwest of avalon. the objects might have originated there. i called the coast guard station in cape may, nj and reported what happened. they asked many questions, and said they would call back, which they never did. when i related this event to our son, he suggested that send a report to your organization.
