|Line of lights in the sky near midnight over Mystic/Stonington, CT.
Upon arrival home about 23:45 on 9/6/2015, I exited the car and glanced up into the sky. A line of lights was approaching me in the sky from approximately west. At first I thought they were stars but they were so bright I looked again. The were bright amber, non-flashing and moving in single file towards me, about eight to ten or more in number. They did not appear to be high like an jetliner at 20,000 feet but not more than about three to five thousand feet. They snaked a little back and forth single file across the sky towards me. I grabbed my phone and tried to get a movie of it, but the movie quality is not nearly as sharp and clear as they were. They did not blink like aircraft.
I ran into the house and woke my wife to come out and see them. She arrived outside to see the last few file past us overhead. They had not made a sound up to this point but soon we heard a plane and she assumed that was them and went back to bed. I watched a little longer and the plane sound got louder and a plane appeared approaching from the south. It had different colored flashing lights on its wing tips and was clearly the source of the plane sound. It disappeared in the direction the strange lights had left, approximately north and east.
I have checked the video and only got about thirty seconds of the light show. The quality is very poor, but you can see a few of them on the screen. They were much brighter amber to the naked eye.
