While admiring the planetary alignment that occured on Wed. 4/17 on an extremely clear night in Virginia Beach, I noticed two bright lights completely parallel to each other east to west not north to south, I thought were stars at first, then noticed they were moving east at a rapid speed, they were about the magnitude of venus, I then noticed two more parallel lights that were north and south of each other moving ahead of the first set but slightly dimmer. The two dimmer set of lights then changed position criss crossing each other. I watched both sets as they disappeared into the haze of the city lights. Very Very strange!

((NUFORC Note: ISS and Space Shuttle passed over Virginia Beach at 20:45 on this date. PD))
