Shape: Light
Duration: 3 minutes
Line of 30-40 white lights moving single file through the sky from NW to SE

Looking to the SE we could see a line of white lights, moving across the night sky in single file in a very straight line. They were moving from the NW to the SE. When we first saw them I started counting and got up to 28, but there were more coming and we had missed some of them. There was no sound and they were about the brightness of a very bright star. They seemed to be in linear groups of 2 and 3.

Observers were a science teacher and a science professional with advanced degrees.
