|Large groups of white lights seen moving above the clouds
At 6:30 pm I was standing in my driveway saying goodbye to a friend when I noticed a group of seven white star-like lights moving quickly overhead above the clouds.
I pointed to them to show my friend, then we noticed there were other groups of lights spread out in the sky above, all traveling at the same speed and in the same direction, NW to SE.
I got my husband and another friend to come out and see them.
There were so many that we all pointed to different areas of the sky as another moving group became visible between the clouds above. To make sure it wasn't an optical illusion because the clouds were going in the opposite direction, we used electric and telephone wires above us, to focus on and watch the lights quickly cross behind the wires.
We watched for almost five minutes until there were no more moving lights and all that remained were the stars in their stationary positions. We were not able to get an accurate count, but there may have been as many as fifty or more.
There may have been others that had passed overhead before I noticed them.
