5-6 Star like lights moved single file across the sky 10/20/1973

This was a long time ago but here it is.

Myself and a friend were watching the 6th game of the world series.

10/20/1973 (Oakland A's vs Mets) It was about midnight if I remember correctly.

The game was over and my friend left to go home. I minute later he knocked on my door and told me to come outside he wanted to show me something. We want out and he pointed to the sky. I looked up and there were 5 or 6 objects moving across the sky very slowly.

There was no way to calculate the distance but they looked like stars except they were moving slowly in single file across the sky. We didn't really think UFO at the time, we just kind of wondered what they were. We said goodnight and went home.

The next day at work (we both worked at the same company) I picked up the NY Daily News the read about the game. There on the back page taking up half the page was an article with numerous reports of UFO's, from the US to Russia. I believe the Russians were reported as sending up jets to intercept. Another was the Governor of I think Ohio reporting a UFO flying over the roof of his car as he and his wife were driving down a highway. If I was to see the same thing today I would probably think they were satellites and maybe they were. But I found it very unusual that a major publication would have a story so prominently displayed on it's back cover the day after we witnessed this event. I don't really believe in people from other worlds visiting us, only in the possibility. My friend still feels that they came to watch the game. I decided to post this after reading the last post of a sighting on the same day as mine.
