4 lights? in square formation

Approximately 4:30 am, on June 29, 2017, while taking my dog out before leaving for work, I looked up to the Eastern sky, and witnessed 4 white lights appear out of nowhere. They looked almost like white clouds against a pitch black sky, except perfectly round. The effect was like the moon being behind a cloud. I’m not 100% sure they were lights, but because they were perfectly round, and in a square formation, I have to rule out the possibility of them being clouds.

While spending several seconds observing them, I noticed what seemed to be a faint replica of these lights, just to the right, except almost gone – as if they were dissipating . The “lights” did not move, either around the sky, or in relation to each other. They kept a fixed position. The way they appeared was as if someone blew smoke into a ball.

I do live near Quantico Marine Base, however, the base occupies an area North of me, spanning East and West. What I observed was almost due East, maybe slightly Northeast.
