Strange lights along Hwy 10 West, near Oshkosh.

I was driving west on Wisconsin Hwy 10 from Oshkosh after having attended a graduate studies class. It was between 8:30-8:45 p.m. From the corner of my eye (southwestern sky) I noticed something high in the sky. I turned my gaze to see a horizontal series of orangish lights, maybe 15 total. They all looked about the same size and an equal distance apart. Almost as soon as they appeared the lights blinked out one by one, starting at one end and going off in succession. I kept my gaze to that area in the sky but didn’t see that long line of lights again. I did see a smaller number of these sam lights together in a line and one off to the upper left. These lights blinked off one by one, also. Initially, the sets of lights I saw after the initial horizontal series was also in a horizontal pattern but as I kept heading west, I noticed that 1) the lights got farther away/I got farther away from the lights, and 2) the short line of lights seemed to be on a diagonal in the sky, with that same one light to the upper left. I c an’t imagine I was the only person to see these lights, especially the initial series of 15 as they were very close to the highway. The lights didn’t move from that horizontal or diagonal line except for the one. I looked to see if there were any news reports of these lights but didn’t find anything. My experience seems to be similar to some others in that same area (Oshkosh, Omro, etc) that are also documented on your website.
