Saw a long string of lights above the clouds

Saw a long string of lights way above the clouds for about 30 seconds -lights in the string a mixture of red and yellow ball lights set along the string with dark gaps between the lights, travelling slowly in a straight line that the disappeared -there was no noise and 4 times the length of an aircraft- my witness was my mate I was talking to on the phone who I described what I was seeing to -there was no alcohol or drugs involve as I was boringly sober -this is the 4th UFO sighting I've had in 40 odd years, although one was explained as the shuttle going up, seen as a shaky triangular flamming light thousands of miles away above the horizon, seen off the top of The Remarkable Mountain Range after dusk in August 2003 I think. The first one I saw witnessed by 4 of us sitting at Huia Hall Reserve on sea wall 30 December 1978 was a white light ball with 25 meter yellow on blue streamer that appeared over Awhitu Penninsula head and dropped down to fly across the Manukau Harbour before lifting again over Spraggs Point at which time it disappeared with a pop and all the lights in Huia went out [also witnessed athe the local Waitakere Ranger sitting on his front portch on the hill behind us]. The second was at Takanini in summer 1991 I think, seen by 15 of us in clear skies, tall joined pods that were translucent in colour and wriggled through the sky like a snake -we couldn't explain it -there was no sound
