String of lights snaked around the moon during a lunar eclipse.

I was on the phone with my friend and we were watching a lunar eclipse. I was watching from my kitchen door. I remember it being late at night and a total lunar eclipse. So I used that information to estimate the date of the sighting since I knew it was between 1996 and 1999, a total eclipse, late at night, on a night when we didn't have to work the next day and I came up with 9/27/96.

Anyway, I remember watching the eclipse completely cover the moon, when suddenly I saw a chain of small, round, white lights snake around the right side of the moon, like pearls on a string. Right away I asked my friend, who was in her house a couple miles away, if she saw them too, but she did not. I only saw them for a few seconds. I couldn't tell how far away they were since I was staring at the moon, and I had no other frame of reference.
