|Four bright lights travelling in a row at sunset.
We were diving home from the cottage at around 9:00PM on August 3rd. and the sun was setting.
I noticed in the corner of my eye what at first I thought was a reflection on the power lines beside the road. When I looked over I could see that these were not reflections, but lights in the sky. There were four lights of equal brightness in a row, seeming to keep pace with us driving at about 100 km/h (65 mph.) At one point the third and fourth objects were above and below each other for a time but otherwise they stayed in a row.
I was driving, and my wife was taking the pictures with my phone. Unfortunately we did not get a picture of object 3 and 4 above and below each other.
The light seemed to be reflected by the objects, it did not appear that they were producing the light themselves. The brightness did seem to stay constant as the sun was going down however. It looked almost like a small contrail in front and behind each object, and there was no colour or strobing/flashing visible, it looked like a very bright, white light as if sunlight reflected off a mirror.
They slowly gained distance on us but it never seemed that they were actually moving. They travelled in a westerly direction toward the City of Winnipeg where we live. At one point an airplane could be seen travelling North to South, and it was clearly different from the objects, it did not produce the bright reflection and the contrail was visible.
Our daughter also saw the objects, and said they looked like shooting stars.
