Location: Hibbing, MN
Shape: Chevron
Duration: 7-10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
A large V shaped object flew overhead.

Every night I sit in the hot tub and track satellites. I am very familiar with the night sky including Starlink.
As I was closing the hot tub something caught my eye approaching from the ENE sky.
It appeared at about 50. It was ghost like. Almost invisible. The silhouette of the craft was faint yet distinctive.
A "V" shaped craft with 3 large (in comparison to the "wing") lights on each side of center. They were barely visible. It almost seemed to be cloaked in a cloud like fog around the craft.
The altitude was well below 10,000 ft and subsonic, approximately 300-500 mph.
It was large, wing span greater than a 747.
It was also silent. No sound at all.
I lost sight at approximately 50 and 180 to first sight of the craft (straight line trajectory).
Maybe related to this incident, but shortly before I saw the craft and shortly after I noticed that there seemed to be an increase in satellites. With at least two satellites moving east to west
