Multiple sightings of different type objects over Jackson, Michigan

My fiancé and I were in the hot tub on Monday 3/25/19 in Jackson, Michigan, at approximately 10 PM. It was a clear night with many stars visible. We were looking in the direction of Orion’s Belt to the Southwest, when we saw a line formation directly overhead, consisting of 6 lights, traveling from East to West, at a high rate of speed. From directly overhead to out of sight to the west took about 4 to 5 seconds. It appeared to be a long thin illuminated light shaft with 6 distinct circular lights evenly spaced along the shaft. It disappeared into the western sky.

This was followed several minutes later by a similar sighting basically following the first one’s path.

Then several minutes later there were two more that traversed Southeast to Northwest and then another few minutes passed, when we saw two more traveling North to South.

Next, a V formation of lights, 3 or 4 lights on each side of the V, was seen traveling East to West, basically following the path of the first light shaft. ,This was followed by a similar, or the same, V light formation traveling from SE to NW. Then there was a larger V formation traveling E to W. ,Then a few minutes passed before one larger circular or spherical illuminated object was observed rapidly traveling East to West along the same path as the V formations. ,Several minutes later, another two V-shaped objects, one following the other, were observed traveling NE to SW. ,And then after a few minutes, one more V was observed traveling W to E low in the Southern sky.

Shortly after the last sighting, we saw a commercial jet aircraft, traveling N to S, at an estimated altitude of 20,000 feet based on the relative size of its navigation lights. Based on this, the unidentified formations were above this at around 30,000 feet.

Sightings ended at 10:48.
