Duration:About 5 minutes
Multiple lights flying over city

My girlfriend and I had just got back to our apartment from shopping at approximately 9:00pm. As I went to unlock the door I looked towards the west to catch a glimpse of the night sky which I do often, and saw numerous (I estimate at least 100) dim, pulsing lights silently moving across the sky from the south to the north. I stood and watched for a good 5 minutes as they all passed, each one glowing and pulsing at the same rate, some grouped together, but also many by themselves, all traveling the same speed. I have never seen anything like this before, the speed they were traveling didn't look like any aircraft I have ever seen, not to mention the amount of lights I saw would be very unlikely for any airplanes or jets to be traveling in a group that large. If anyone else saw this or has any idea what it is, please tell me because I'd really like to know!!!
