|I saw an echelon formation of five short horizontal white dimmed lights, flying west to east, at constant speed. The lights didn't maintain perfect formation, but were still tightly close to each other.
The velocity seemed fairly high as it took some 15-20 seconds for the formation to fly across the sky, which appeared substantially faster than conventional aircraft. Nevertheless, in the night sky I couldn't estimate the altitude of the formation, so can't vouch for the velocity estimate either.
There was a distant jet engine noise, but I was standing pretty close to the highway, so can't say for sure where the noise came from.
