I was on my friend''s back deck smoking a cigarette visiting his beach house. i first noticed the object after he pointed to 4 red lights hovering over the ocean. at first i thought it was a flight of military helicopters or aircraft. the object was 4 light flying in what looked like a v shaped pattern, flying in from the ocean before it started heading down there beach towards the southern part of new jersey. at first i just thought it was the alcohol, we were drinking moonshine and sharing a toke. we lost sight of the object after it disappeared over the boardwalk.
