Not sure if this was natural or unatural....

I was coming out to my truck around was close to storming so this made me unsure if this event was lightning or not...but then after hearing some of the recent events I thought I'd let you know...there was a huge flash of light, and the sky seemed to light up as bright as day so I turned to see what had just happened and as I turned I saw up in the eastern sky what looked like about 5 fireballs in a horizontally stacked formation that at the moment I thought they resembled what looked like sperm swimming a short distance across the sky....they were bright white and the color of the sky around them was bluish/purple....the horizontal direction and quanity is what really made me question the lightning theory...not sure if this was natural or not.
