Shape: Formation
Duration:1/2 hour +
While gazing up at the stars, you had to look carefully but I noticed a formation yet more a bunch of single lighted objects. They were traveling similiar to what a jet would appear as. They all were heading southerly from the north. Couldn't hear anything, they were in the hundreds. I was very shocked by this. I was told that it could be mapping satelites or reflections of some kind from distant cities or cars off the atmosphere or ionosphere. I am no astronomer so bare with me. I watched in amazement, tried counting the groups and guessing at a # of them like you would jelly beans in a jar. The distance I could see them in was roughly 3 miles to the lefÝ and right, from the top of the small mountain I was on.

Looked like points of light. Couldn't hear anything maybe a faint hum at the most but nothing significant. Color was white just like a star would appear. Actually meshed in very good with the stars that clear night.
