Almost home on a walk this evening and I look N, NW up the street and observe a train of glowing lights coming over the horizon at a good clip, all in a straight lime, about a pin head or star size each, and making no noise. Thankfully, I was only startled for a second as it was truly a sight to behold. There was an aura about the central points of light. I stood and observed as it crossed from about the 320 to 340 degree mark, about 10 to 20 degrees into the sky, rose at a peak of about 80 degees overhead, and sailed quickly over me and vanished in SSE position about 170 degrees from what was about north. It was actually no lomger visible at about 15 to 20 degrees above the southern horizon. I could make out about 20 to 30 distinctly bright objects, with on trailing at the end.
The time was about 8:53 pm when I saw it first and it vanished about 1 or 2 minutes later. The night was clear tonight, about 60 degrees with some moisture visible in the air I suspect contributed to the apparent glow of the lights.
Well, it didn't take me long to realize it was a Starlink. What a site to behold.
It made local and other news in the state of Wisconsin. In fact, MUFON WI received two reports one right after another with a video in one a description in another that fit what I saw.
The website for space-x says there was a recent launch of 53 Satlink satellites today April 21 2022 about a Flacon 9. The website starlink finder confirms my location as a GOOD viewing point for that Starlink at that time.
I did take video and pics but only had my phone with me.

So, sadly no UFO. But still fun to see.
