Duration:5-10 seconds
Five bright white lights in a line, traveling west to east in East horizon, two front lights slightly dimmer, lights quivering.

Five bright white flourescent lights, at first seemed in a group, then stretched into a line, moving steadily and rather slowly, from west to east about 30 degrees from horizon, in eastern sky. Two front lights dimmer than last three, but all seemed to twinkle on then off at different times, giving the appearance of a shimmering line. Observed for 5 to 10 seconds. Line moved horizontally, then angled downward. Seemed to either blink off or just disappear perhaps from low horizon atmosphere. My husband and I, both 58, lifelong residents and farmers of this county, were returning from our farm into town to our home. I saw it out his driver's side window when I turned to speak to him.
