need help identifying these eggs

I did not notice these yesterday so I'm thinking that they were laid last night. They are above the water line and it is about and inch and a half long. I have 3 white mystery snails in the tank, could they be from them? Or, could they be from some other thing like a bug or something in the house? The only other things that are in the tank are fish (neon tetras, siamese fighting fish, angles, and endlers, and some shrimps). If they are from the snails, how long till they hatch? and is there anything special that I shoulc be doing for them?
