Reported: 5/4/2020 10:43:56 PM 22:43
Posted: 6/25/2020
Location: Cobourg (Canada), ON
Shape: Light
Duration:5-6 minutes
3 separate lights with identical trajectories travel SSE

At approximately 21:30 I was looking at the moon which was in the southern hemisphere approximately 60° above the southern horizon. The sky was clear.

I noticed what appeared to be a satellite / point-light emerge from the NNW travelling in a SSE direction. It appeared to be travelling somewhat faster than a typical satellite.

I followed its course for about one minute until it faded from view essentially due south from me, approximately 30° above the southern horizon.

Approximately one minute later, a second satellite / point-light emerged from the same NNW direction with a trajectory and velocity identical to the first light.

Approximately one minute after that, a third satellite / point-light emerged from the same NNW direction again identical to the first two.

There was no sound.

I looked at the third light through handheld binoculars but could not distinguish any features or details.

The fact that all three lights faded from view in the southern hemisphere well above the horizon (perhaps 30° above the horizon) suggested they were at a very high altitude.

Approximately 30 seconds after the third light faded from view, a similar light emerged from the SSE and appeared to travel due north, where it faded from view.
