Location: Aadorf (Switzerland),
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
at least 50 bright lights in single line, evenly spaced moving across sky from SW to NE

I woke up about 4:15 in the morning. It was still dark. I went to the window, opened the window as I sometimes do when I wake that early in the morning. I looked outside to take in the night view. Clear sky, warm, calm, peaceful. I looked up and noticed a string of bright single lights, almost as bright as Venus or Mars. I just as quickly noticed they were moving. Coming from the horizon to the South West moving toward the North East. The got closer. I first thought they might be satellites but as the leading lights came almost over the house, I could see the string of lights continued all the way back to the horizon from where I first noticed them. They were all in line and evenly spaced. All except one. The first 4 or 5 were in line and then the next one was noticeably off the line but continuing to move as the others. All the rest were perfectly in line and evenly spaced. There was no sound of course. They seemed to be very high almost as a! satellite may appear if you saw one on a dark clear night far from any light pollution. This procession continued for about 15 minutes and I just watched in amazement and wonder. Obviously wondering what it could possibly be. Until the end of the line of lights finally came past and the show was over. All were evenly spaced and moving at a speed that a plane moving through the sky over head at 20,00 feet would appear to be moving. These were not airplanes, this is Switzerland. Aircraft do not fly during these hours in most western European countries. Much less 50 or more in a straight line evenly spaced like that. Satellites? Again, I cannot imagine that many satellites all in a line moving across the sky like that but I suppose it is possible. Been looking in the news for any other person making this report. I could not have been the only one to have seen this.
