Twelve star-like objects viewed in random patterns over St. Paul, Minnesota

I have been spotting Chemtrails, the last three years. In my line of work, I am able to watch the entire metro skies from the roof of the heating plant , where I'm employed. At 0330 this morning, I began looking for high altitute aircraft and weather patterns. My first observation was what looked like a satellite. It was moving slowly from Northwest to Southeast. I watched it's straight line path until it was out of sight . I then turned around to view west again and I saw a bright star-like object, traveling from west to east . It was to my north and as bright as Saturn. It was not an airplane. It had no flashing lights. It appeared lower and larger than the satellite I had just seen, but higher than the hazy cloud patterns present. I was so amazed at this object and was semi- scared by it's appearance. Suddenly there was another object right behind the first. As if they were flying in formation. Both objects were on the same course and speed. The first object was brighter than the second and I watched them disappear in the eastern sky. I have been in the military during Viet Nam and spent my entire life around airplanes. Never have I seen such craft. I sat down and was in semi-shock trying to measure what I had just seen. Then I noticed another satellite object coming towards me from the north. I watched it, until it vanished overhead. (no cloulds near) After straining to see where it might have gone, a small red flash appeared. I'm thinking to myself now and wondering just what is going on...I radioed down to my work partner, to get upstairs and see the show that was going on. He arrived in two minutes and I explained my observations. He also has seen these on occasion and the couple he has observed didn't always move in a straight line but eratic patterns. We both began watching now and within two minutes I noticed another bright satellite object moving towards us from the west. I pointed it out to him and he caught sight of it, also. Then this object faded from a very bright light to nothing, r! ight abo ve us. Within less than an a hour, 12 objects were seen until cloud cover and the brightening sunrise took over.
