Numerous high altitude fast moving lights in formation.

On 22 December 2018 at approximately 2200hrs, I was taking my dog out for the final time of the night. The moon was extremely bright and clouds were patchy. As I looked up at the moon, I noticed a large number of solid lights traveling from a southeastern to northwestern direction. All lights were equidistant and in the same formation.

I couldn't guess the altitude...much higher than commercial flights. There were several normal aircraft in the area.

I watched about 25-30 of these lights fly over, I tried to record them with my phone, but thanks to the bright moon, didn't get anything.

I went inside and told my wife to come outside and look. She was baffled, especially at the speed they were traveling. Much to fast to be a commercial flight, and too many on the same flight path.

I tried looking on the airplane tracker sites to see what was in the air at the time, and nothing out of the norm. Definitely not what we witnessed.
