  1. On Sunday night (April 26th) around 9:20 pm Central Daylight Time in the Midwest US at about 43 North, my dad and I observed an odd aerial phenomenon. We're thinking they were Starlink satellites or similar, but I wanted to check on this. We observed a series of lights moving across the sky from west to east. I can't give a precise point at which they appeared due to buildings, trees and clouds on the western horizon. However, I would say they tracked from the WSW to east across the sky. In addition, they disappeared at about due south from my point of view, maybe 45 degrees above the horizon. There were multiple "clusters" of these lights. Per my dad, the first included five or six lights, this was followed by several individual lights and a final "cluster" of at least two dozen. All of these lights seemed to follow the same path in the sky and moved around 1/4 to 1/2 degree per second across the sky. I would estimate a magnitude between 2 and 4, but take that with a huge grain of salt as I'm horrible at this. Like I said, I'm thinking these were Starlink satellites, but I can't confirm this. Would Starlink satellites behave in this fashion. Thanks,
