9 small star like objects moving at different times across night sky.

On Wednesday June 15, 2011, at approximately 8:38 PM central time, the ISS flew over from the WSW to NE.

About 8:50 PM a small star like object was spotted moving from the NE toward the S. The object was about as bright as a star though not as bright as one from a constellation. This was the first of nine similar objects.

The second and third objects appeared around 9:00 PM. One was headed N to S and the other S to N. moving away from each other. The fourth and fifth objects were seen around 9:15. One was moving SSE and the other was moving from W to E and the two objects intersected. The remainders of the objects were seen every few minutes until about 9:40 PM.

I checked the Heavens-Above website for satellites that may have been overhead but I didn’t see any listing for my area at that time. Hopefully that is all they were.
