lights in the sky

Between 0540 and 0610 I saw 6 different lights appear about 30 degrees above the horizon due north of my position. They lasted variously from 5 to perhaps 20 seconds all moved in an easterly direction. I dont believe they were aircraft. Perhaps satellites but I have observed satellites for the past 8 years. These objects appeared not to move as fast as the satellites. Yesterday morning at approximately the same time and in the same location I observed 2 similar sightings. One lasted so long I thought it was the landing light on an inbound Lufthansa or other cargo flight. It was southbound. After about 25 seconds the light went out. About 10 minutes later another light, not quite as bright, appeared headed east southeast and lasted maybe 10 seconds. There was no sound. The only other aircraft in vicintiy was AK-62 departing FAI at 0600. The lights I saw did not go near the airport.
