|6 unusual lights
I was spotting satellites when I suddenly notices 6 faint lightblibs in the sky (far fainter than the satellite). I was already quite used to the lowlight environment or else I doubt if I've seen them. They were around 80 degrees up in the sky to the south and they disappeared around 40 to 50 degrees in the southeast. They speeded seemed to stay the same, it moved little faster than usual satalites I've confirmed with a normal satelite that this was about the height where they went into the shadow of the earth.
The thing which disturbed me most was that there were 6 objects near each other (farest in between was 2 thumbsthick at armlength) and really looked if they were flying in formation with some little shifting back and forward as you see in formation flight in flightshows.
