Parallel lights in east nearly overhead

First, I looked on line to locate a UFO site to make a report, I became discouraged as the sites I found seemed to be complicated and had their own agenda. A couple of days ago my wife was talking to a friend who is retired from US Navy Intelligence telling my incident and she said look again on line and make a report. So, I located your site.

On December 2 2021, 620pm I walked to our community mailbox a few houses from ours and across the street. This is in a northwest direction.

Upon getting our mail and walking to return home in a southeast direction I normally look to the south and observe the exisiting planets and stars if visible. This night a couple of planets were visible, I believe Jupiter and Saturn. I then scanned toward the east above the two-story homes and slightly overhead. What caught my eye was an object in this direction (east) appeared to be 6 to 8 white lights in two parallel rows, it is now 624pm (according to the camera phone photo). I stopped to observe the lighted object. I could not tell if this was one object or multiple. As tight as the lights were, I would say one object. Absolutely no sound or blinking lights were observed from this object. I tucked the mail under my left arm, took my phone out with my right hand, activated the phone and snapped a photo which of course it turned out blurry since I had the phone camera in an exposure mode that delayed completion of the photo. I should have activated the video. As this was happening, from the east - northeast we had a very high layer of cloud cover approaching the object.
I trotted to the house to get my wife to step out to the back patio and observe this, however the object was gone or hidden by the cloud cover.

Total observation time was 1 minute.

My wife looked on the site Next Door to see if any reports of lights had been reported, none have been.
