On april 30th at 9:00pm, my wife and i observed between 30-40 points of light emerge to the right of venus in a straight line formation. the lights were evenly spaced and moving sw from our position. half way through the procession, a single light pulled out of formation and remained stationary, closer to venus, only to fall back into formation at the end of the line. the string of lights never entered earth's atmosphere and remained in interplanetary space. the entire procession lasted all of 5 minutes as they traversed the sky from venus (in the nw) to the southeastern horizon.
