One slow moving (west to east) distant light suddenly appeared as two, side by side. Soon after both projected fan shaped lights ahead.

I was in our hot tub, facing west / southwest at about 7:20 pm. It was a partly cloudy sky with a bright moon, waxing crescent. There were clear breaks in the clouds, and I saw a single blurred light that looked like a satellite moving below and to the south of the moon in a west to east direction. It seemed to be moving much slower than a satellite. It unexpectedly appeared as two dull lights side by side, close together, still moving at the same speed and direction. Suddenly both seemed to have projected a fan shaped arch of light in front of them that looked like headlights in fog or snow. At that point I lost sight as they were obscured by trees and continued in an easterly direction. I listened as they went by to see if I could hear anything (as happens with planes once they pass overhead) but heard nothing.
