Watching a contrail about sunset I noticed a bright star like object close to the trail as the aircraft passed. My first thought was of Venus but I realized that wasn't possible and then I noticed another star like object just below the first, probably five degrees. Then I saw another lower and to the left of the second. I got excited and called my friend Jerry who lives about a hundred miles east in the Reno Nevada area to see if he could see anything. He said yes he could then about the same time we saw more I could see seven total but Jerry could see only six .Probably because he has mountains to his west. Both our wives saw them. I got my little telescope and set it on the highest one and watched as the sky got darker. The object looked round and seemed to have a bright spot on the lower left side. It continually got dimmer and kept moving at a steady rate across my field of view due to the earths rotation. As time went on it got dimmer probably due to increased atmosphere getting between me and it as the earth rotated. I called a friend in Hawaii and said to keep an eye out for the phenomenon as the sun started to set. I didn't think to take a picture.
