Duration:8-10 seconds
Two shiny lights/objects dancing on the edge of, or in, a thunderstorm.

I was driving home from work, following a thunderstorm from Richmond to Manotick east on Bankfield Road. I was looking at the lightning and the storm clouds, and it occurred to me that I saw something silvery or flashing either on the edge of the thunderstorm of in it. So I kept looking, and there were two silvery unidentifiable objects flying with one another, kind of dancing around, not in a pattern I can describe (except with my hands), but not in a way that planes can fly. One man had pulled to the side of the road to watch the storm too, or something else - since he was looking in the same direction as I was, I assumed it was the storm.

I had no camera to take a picture of the storm over the open fields. I kept driving, wanting to stop but there were cars behind me. I almost did a double-take so it was a delayed reaction, like holy crap! And I looked for them at every opportunity I got, but still trying to drive safely, but I lose sight of them and never saw them reappear.
