I took my dog out this morning about 6am. It had snowed out a little during the night and I decided to shovel and sweep. The sky was so clear and I could hear the lake making ice I looked up at the sky hoping to see a satellite and I did, but while I was looking up I kept seeing blinking lights here and there. I thought it was just my eyes. I finally spotted a flashing light that I could follow and I began to see many. The traveling, blinking lights were about the size of a smaller star and I'm not sure how high up they were maybe out of our atmosphere. The blinks looked like a camera flash.
They traveled in erratic pattern and flashed every now and then I had to go inside. I came back out about 15 minutes later and tried to spot them again but no luck. It was starting to get a little lighter outside but could still see the brighter stars.
I was standing facing West but I saw them almost straight above me and a little to the South, West and North. Not sure what I saw but when the sky clears again I will be looking.
