I live in Airdrie Alberta Canada and I was walking my dogs in the field outside of our complex (6:30am mountain time) when I noticed multiple satellites in a row moving west to east. They came into view over head just slightly to the west and stayed visible as far east as I could see. There was a total of 33 from the time I first noticed them till they stopped appearing. Is it possible that these were just Satellites as the most I have ever seen in the past has been 3 and they were all going in different orbits (directions)
I know this is an old thread, but I saw early this morning 46 satellites in a row, while observing the sky through my binoculars. I've never seen anything like it before.

There were 7 or 8 at first. I was shocked, wondering what I was seeing. Then another group right after, and so on, until I counted 46. The last one was brighter, which I am assuming means it was larger? It was not in the exact line as the others, but a parallel line not far removed. It was also faster as it overtook the last one of the others.
