There was a light that was crescent moon shaped, but was not the moon, the moon was in the other part of the sky, that shined on and off in the same place multiple times before it ceased. about 3 seconds later a string of lights, lower than the original light, floated across the sky in a line towards downtown buffalo. shortly after, i lost sight of the lights behind a roof of a house. it was baffling. truly one of the most astonishing things i have ever seen.
