Rocket-related clouds - 8.10.2018 at 06.45 Hollola Observation number 78300

Visibility IV / V

I went to the mailbox in the morning and as I looked up at the sky (face west) I noticed a star-like moving light of size and brightness that would illuminate its surroundings. Moved northwest at "plane speed." It seemed to stop (?) For a moment, when it separated from the direction of travel in a sector of about 45 degrees, like a fan, maybe 5-6 smaller lights, which faded after 3-4 s. Continued his journey, and so did I. It was about 06:45.

I don’t do astronomy or UFO research, but I haven’t seen anything like it by this age (66). I did not hear any sound and did not experience any transcendental feelings.

Compared to "Star Flight", the object moved very slowly, as did the lights diverging from it.

The sky was almost cloudless. The weather was calm, with a temperature of about -2.
