sauntering lights across the night sky left me woundering what this could be....

I was about to leave for Hockey that evening when out of the sky I noticed a shooting star so in my curiosity I preceded to look for more. On my view of the night sky there was an object with three lights across a disc like craft, with a red light circling around the other lights. This object was cruising at a low altitude at a slower than normal speed for a plane, which crosses the air traffic from our local airfield. Normally you can clearly hear the roaring sound of these planes approaching the airport as the fly around the front side of my house a few hundred feet above.

This object was not a plane, there was no sound from this craft as it sauntered across the night sky in what was a south easterly direction. Watching this object for ten minutes I came to my conclusion that any plane flying out from the nanaimo airport would have clearly left my site as it faded into the black with the sound still lingering in the distance though the ten minutes or so.

There was also a second much smaller craft that was higher above which seemed to stay in a perfect parallel in relation to the bigger craft. With planes you notice the opposite flash of a green then red light on either tip of the wings, two bright landing lights usually are turned on for visual during night landings. This was not the case in my sighting.
