Horizontal lights hovering over Commencement Bay

On the date and time listed above, my fiance and I noticed a very bright light hovering steadily in the sky over Commencement Bay in Tacoma, Washington. My best estimate puts the object(s) at around 20,000 feet. I was able to view the light through a set of binoculars (inexpensive, used primarily at the ball park) at which time I noticed that the light was actually comprised of three glowing lights in a perfect horizontal row. By the time my fiance looked through the binoculars, she reported seeing four lights, then a brief red dot flashed at one end of the formation. Immediately thereafter, the lights moved south at what appeared to be high speed, before disappearing. Neither of us have ever witnessed anything like it, so we wanted to report it to someone who might be more experienced and better-equipped to process the information. Thank you!
