a formation of dimly glowing objects...maybe birds? Very odd.

I have been debating with myself whether to bother reporting this, and decided it looked odd enough to do it...I went out onto the balcony to have a cigarette early this morning, and first saw two dimly lit (yellowish-white) objects pass over me, heading south. When I first saw them, I thought they might be military jets, and then that perhaps they were birds. Anyway, after these two had passed, I noticed what at first looked like a string of similar dim lights, then appeared to be a loose V formation, I think a dozen or so lights, heading south-west.

The way they moved, I still think they could have been birds, night herons perhaps, that just looked like they were glowing because of the ambient light being amplified by snow on the ground. The way they appeared to glow through the cloud cover, however, seemed odd to me.

Anyway, just thought I'd post this in case anyone else saw these lights and thought they looked unusual.
