On this evening it was dark and partly cloudy. While listening to a live band outside and watching the SpaceX launch live on my phone, We noticed several of the dancers staring up into space. We were confused as the life launch in front of us on my phone hadn't taken off yet. We rose to our feet and watched into the sky in the direction everyone was looking. There was a large white light on the left almost as if we were looking at the end of a flashlight through the clouds. It was going very slowly In fact look like hardly moving it all. Off to the right of that which would have been the south there was a smaller light like a bright star shining through the clouds as well. As the next two or three or four minutes went by the large light conical and shape began to close slightly as the main circle of the light closed as if it were a shutter and a camera. Both were bright white lights and very powerful.
We began to ask everyone what they thought it was and people just gathered off as the launch because they had heard there was a launch that night. Unbeknownst to them the launch hadn't even started.
