Multiple large bright objects in western sky

At first as we were driving home we noticed a triangular formation of bright orange lights. One was cigar shaped, the other two were circular. One of the circular ones started to alternate between circular and cigar shaped. It was almost like it was accelerating then decelerating, but it was very difficult to notice the transition as it was happening. After a few more minutes several more lights appeared in the sky with the same orange-ish cast to them. They seemed like really bright stars, but we've ever seen any stars that large before. They must have been pretty far away, or very high up in the sky because as the earth rotated away from the sun we started to lose sight of the lights as they dipped lower and lower into the horizon. The final lights we saw appear were very distinctly cigar shaped and almost seemed like comets. Not sure if it was simply sunlight reflecting off some phenomena in the atmosphere or what. Definitely a strange sight to behold. It was hard to tell if they were moving because they were so far away they almost looked stationary.

My fiancee took a photo but her camera was not able to distinguish the objects very clearly.
