Well-lighted cylindrical object in Calgary sky moving NW to SE. Odd shape, size, and angle (orientation).

March 4, 2021 @ 06:05 Calgary, Alberta, Canada Standing at a bus stop near my residence, which is inner city, I looked up at the morning sky and the moon, then noticed a cylindrical set of lights moving NW to SE. The sky was clear on this morning, as far as I could tell, being able to easily see the moon and stars.

At first I suspected the collection of lights to be a plane. It seemed to be moving oddly though, as I thought to myself it seems like it's coming down and even worried for a second that it was on a trajectory with my neighbourhood. In the next moment, I was puzzled at the shape of the object, the angle of it (orientation), and also the luminosity of it, seemingly surrounded with lights.

It was then that I first considered I should take some pictures/video, and got my phone out. I am not the fastest draw in the west at taking pictures with my phone, and this was very early in the AM as I waited for my bus to go to work. But I collected 4-5 decent pics and one 40 sec video, plus another very short clip.

The object continued on its course SE. It became dimmer as it moved away, and then my bus showed up.

The object moved at about the speed of a plane, I would say, certainly not too fast, but a steady pace. The video I shot is shaky because of my trying to line it up and even zoom in; it is not the object dancing around. The object stayed on a fairly even course throughout.

I listened for the sound of a plane, and could not be sure I heard it. Living in the city, there is a lot of ambient noise that sounds like a constant hum, especially early in the morning when there are not much car noises on the street. There was just no really obvious jet sounds.
