At 2000 (8 pm) while looking at andromeda galaxy, i glimpsed a streak of light stationary to the north. i grabbed my binoculars 12x50 and looked at the streak. it turned out to be a string of lights approximately 20 to 30 pointed in a south east direction as viewed from my location. the lights were about 15 degrees above the ground just below and left of polaris. i then turned my spotting scope 20x60 in the direction the lights and spotted the lights moving at a high rate of speed to the south east. the lights were all the same size and same distance apart moving in the same direction. (my guess is they were outside the atmosphere because as they travelled to the southeast, they disappeared as if loosing reflection from the sun.) there was not enough time to make a positive identification other than what i have printed here. atmospheric conditions were excellent for viewing as a cold front had passed be the night before. no clouds, no atmospheric distortion other than normal earth curvature. no drugs or alcohol involved before or after the sighting. the aircraft involved was a commercial plane moving in a north direction (possibly heading to san antonio international airport). the aircraft appeared shortly after the lights disappeared. my interest is has anyone else seen this or a similar set of lights and can they be verified better than my description?
