I was driving north from Bolivar, MO, to Hermitage, MO, and then to Urbana at approx. 6:45. I noticed a bright light in the northern sky then two lights appeared, they stayed in the sky for a few seconds and then disappeared. This occured a few times then I noticed a bright light farther west in the sky about the same height but then about 3 or 4 more lights appeared but in an almost straight line. This happened a few times, then they moved a little to the east in between my first two sightings, this time the light had about 5 or 6 different ones still in an almost straight line. I was then driving from Hermitage Mo to Urbana, MO, and both me and my mother-in-law saw the lights in the northern sky with approx 5 or 6 again in a line. This went on for about 45 minutes. If the bright lights were not lit up there was four sometimes five very small lights looked like a regular star out in the sky but they flashed quickly and moved around, not like an airplane would move, but one second they were flashing, scattered out, then the next, they were in a very lose V-shaped.
