Mass Sighting of Hundreds (Maybe Thousands) of Unidentified Lights in the Sky for Approximately One Hour in Northern California

At approximately 4:20 A.M. P.D.T. I went out to my backyard in Redding, California for meditation. Looking up I observed many (hundreds if not thousands) individual points of light maintaining a set distance from one another moving towards the southwest. A very few were moving in the opposite direction over the course of my hour observance. Multiple planes going various directions were also noted, seemingly flying at lower altitudes. At one point off to my right I caught a flash of light moving at an incredible rate of speed towards the northeast. Its speed and light trail made it seem not as a meteor. This sighting lasted for about an hour, after which cloud cover precluded further clear observation. A cell phone captured some photos and video.
