As I stood on my balcony, I saw approximately 40 bright lights evenly spaced moving in single file from SW to NE across SW Missouri.

At 18:30 I was out on my balcony and was looking up in the night sky at the stars. I spotted a bright light going across from SW to NE. I then saw another and another and another they were evenly spaced apart and traveling at the same rate of speed. I stood there watching and noticed that they were coming from the SW. I stayed counting them I got up to 15 and thought this is no way planes or helicopters for they all had just a single bright light. I couldn't get a good video or picture due to the darkness and they wouldn't show-up. I then ran and got my Son to come and see them not knowing if they would be there once I returned with my Son as a witness. We got back out on the balcony and they were still there just as before. One after another and up to 40 of them I also noticed planes flying around the same area with their blinking white and red lights and I could till the planes were at a lower altitude then all the single white bright lights were that were! going across the night sky.

After the single file white bright lights stopped I stayed watching the same areas to see if anymore came as the first set. And, if anymore sightings of planes in the same area. I then witnessed 8 more of the same single bright light going in the same direction as the multiple ones. However, I could tell these were higher up then the other ones and further apart then as they got just passed my backyard tree line I saw a bright flash of a few of them then they were gone. I went back inside and went to see if anything was posted online from any other sources. This was at 17:15 and I found your site and decided to post this. A feedback to my sighting would be appreciated if another reports should come in.

Thank you,
