Location: Flint, MI
Shape: Unknown
Duration:5 minutes
Rotating object, appearing to be near lake Lake Michigan near Grand Rapids.

Saw a line of lights, evenly spaced apart, which appears to be part of a larger structure which was rotating. Caught on video but the quality is not the greatest. Appeared to be about 100 miles due west from Flint, MI - likely near Lake Michigan close to the Grand Rapids area.

When I first saw them, it appeared that it was several separate objects, flying straight and disappearing into space, but after reviewing the video it definitely appears they were part of a larger object which is rotating. Very clear night, and able to clearly see passenger aircraft flying at cruising altitudes, this appears to be much lower than them and compared to images of the starlink satellites - the spacing in between lights is much, much father apart.

There appears to be an aircraft, likely a helicopter, flying around the vicinity of the first object, and disappears shortly after the lights do. From start to finish of my video is exactly 2 min 20 sec. The video stops on its own and for some reason takes a single picture as it shuts off. At precisely this time the lights disappeared.
