12 lights travelling equidistant from one another. Possible large craft sighting.

I woke up at approximately 4:30 am on April 19, 2020. I was staying with my family in rural, Alberta approx. 50km south of Camrose. I decided to look at the stars while I was up. I looked into the southeast sky. In the sky, quite high up, I noticed a light. It looked about the same size, shape, and colour, of a typical star—small and white. It was travelling in a smooth, gentle arc to the east. Behind this light was another light, following maybe 4 seconds behind. This second light followed the first taking the exact same trajectory and maintaining the exact same speed. A third light then followed.

At this point I left the window to wake up my father. When I returned to the window, small lights were still travelling in the same manner, making no deviations to speed or trajectory. I counted at least 12 lights. The lights all came into my view, or materialized, at the same point in the sky and then passed out of my view. I only saw three of these small lights in the sky at any given time before the east most light left my field of vision. The lights gave off no noise and all travelled in the same, perfect, trajectory at the same speed. This uniformity seems impossible to have been obtained by human aircraft. Additionally, travelling restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 crisis make so many planes travelling at once unlikely.

When the last travelling light left my view, I noticed three lights in the sky where the travelling lights had materialized. The two lights closer to the horizon moved erratically towards and away from each other in jerking motions entirely different from the smooth movements of the travelling lights. The third light, which formed an approximate equilateral triangle with the two lights below it, occasionally moved but primarily stayed stationary and blinked in no specific pattern After watching these lights for a few minutes, I observed a large object travelling through the sky. I believe it also materialized from the same point in the sky as the others. This object had three large yellow lights on it’s bottom and flew from higher up in the sky to just above the tree line before leaving my sight. The object flew silently.

The next morning I google searched UFO sightings in Alberta and noticed a report on the National UFO reporting centre from an engineer in his 50’s living near Calgary, Alberta. This individual, 2 months earlier, appears to have witnessed travelling lights similar to, if not exactly the same as, the travelling lights I observed. He was able to ascertain, through his work, that no satellites were present at the location of his sighting.
