Red and white lights above the great salt lake that appeared to be moving

I was driving to work on the evening of November 13. My route takes me on I80 along the great salt lake. It was already dark outside and I glanced over at the lake and saw numerous orange/red lights Perfectly horizontal, Approximately 4 on each side with white lights in the middle, at what appeared to be 150-200 feet above the water. I was eastbound, just shortly after Saltaire so I know it wasn't the radio towers that are closer to 7200 west.

I grabbed my phone and slowed down (as much as I dared) to try and get a picture. It didn't appear as though I captured the lights in the pic and the lights disappeared. I didn't really think much about it afterwards until I was going through pictures, looking to delete what I didn't want. I found the picture of the black night sky and zoomed in to try and remember what it was I was trying to capture. In the picture I can clearly make out 4 horizontal red lights on the right and 3 on the left. At the top near the lights on the right there is another red light with a white light next to it. At the bottom near the left lights is a single white light. In the picture, all of the lights are streaked. I assume it is because I was still moving.
