three crafts looking like stars flying very high in sky.travaling from swest to neast.

while looking for meteors.I sighted three lights that looked like stars they were blueish in color,very high in the atmosphere or may have been out of atmosphere.moving slow across the sky.It took 3-4 min. for them to move form about the the middle of the sky where i first observed them until me and the other two men could not see them any longer moving towards the northeast.I am a supervisor at a steel co. the other two men are workers at same. note: If these objects would have stoped moving in the sky they would have looked just like stars.

((NUFORC Note: Report is not inconsistent with satellites coursing to the northeast. However, since they were flying to the northeast, it is not at all clear why they should disappear from sight. Satellites disappear from sight during the evening hours because they are coursing AWAY from the sun. During the morning hours, they are flying TOWARD the sun, so unless the sky is light, they should not disappear from sight.))
