Over span of 20 minutes, 3 different craft were spotted. one west, one northerly, third one followed the second one.

At 22:46, I was facing generally SSW, and once again in the vicinity of the "head of hercules" only slightly west in the usual 00:05 location (in reference to physical landmarks of area) the whitish blue light appeared. Duration was slighly longer than before and it took a definitely Western vector.

Shortly after that a satelite had travered from the North to roughly south, I saw it when it was overhead, glowing red as if illuminated by "a setting sun", passing east of Dameb in Cygnus.

However, only a couple minutes at most passed passed and bluish colored light appeared above and traversed about 10 degrees of the sky, moving slower in relation to the aircraft that were in the vicinity- fading slightly as it moved, it blinked off just east of Daneb in Cygnus and came back on in the spot it blinked off in less than 1 second, and immediately headed generally North in an erratic flight path, slowly accelerating, but in relation to the oth! er aircraft- it was moving slower than they were. One civil aircraft had a vector slightly east of the object and was followed momentarily later by a reddish light that faded out as it headed North roughly the same vector as the aircraft as well.

A number of civil aircraft were present in the general vicinity almost constantly- their strobes were lit. In fact the last reddish object had initially appeared in close proximity to one aircraft on a heading of roughly South and West as it had passed- almost in the same location as the aircraft as it appeared initially in "Ophuchus", which took a heading of roughly North and East until in line approximately where the Bluish light had travelled before taking a Northerly vector.

The civil aircraft engines were audible, nothing audible from any of the other craft.
