Description: Our sighting was not in a city or state. We were in a sailing vessel off of Mexico in the Gulf of Mexico. The coordinates listed above. It was a string of 40 lights 2 side by side or 20 pairs all connected to a central spine. The lights were facing down. The light pairs were further from the central spine in the front and tapered down( or got closer to the spine) toward to the rear. There was a tail with no lights except for a blinking light at the end. The object was flying very fast and horizontal at about 20,000 ft. There was NO evidence of any buoyancy mechanism unless the light sources were propulsion facing downwards. It flew directly overhead and made no noise that we could hear. It appeared to be flying on a line from NASA in Houston to the Caribbean sea through the straits between the Yucatan and Cuba. It appeared on the far NNW horizon as if it was flying vertical, but as it got overhead it was clearly flying horizontal. It disappeared in the SSE sky. It appeared and disappeared from our view in 3-4 minutes. My best description is it looked like a centipede in the sky. WE DO HAVE SEVERAL PICTURES of the object and our GPS screen at the time of sighting.

I saw a perfectly straight line of 30 lights, size or length of it was 300 feet long and approximately 1,000 feet high in the night sky traveling from the southeast to the northwest. It looked like a massive string of LED lights moving quite fast. There was NO Sound at all. It happened right at 10 PM on 07/23/2022 In Evans, Colorado.
