|Two long thin objects and one sphere
I was sitting on Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada around 16 hundred hours on the date of 18th August, 2019.
It was a clear sunny day with a few clouds on the horizon. Air temperature was around 23 degrees Celsius. I was facing west. I happened to glance up and noticed 2 very thin shapes on a slight angle below the sun at about 30 degrees up from the horizon. The sun was at about 65-70 degrees from the horizon.
At first I thought they were very thin clouds but then I noticed they were moving away from each other. One going slightly higher and the other lower. They then returned to their original position, about 10 degrees apart, one above the other and appeared to be moving backwards and forwards from each other. Kind of oscillating.
They stayed this way for a few minutes and then began to move apart, one going up, the other going down. Then they moved back again for a few minutes. Then the upper one began climbing towards the sun and disappeared. Shortly later, the lower one also began climbing and then disappeared.
I took a photo of the phenomena and a short video. In the photo, I discovered a small sphere to the lower left of the lower objet.
There were a few other people around but as there was a rock concert going on the park behind me, most people were looking that way with their backs to the sun. My wife, who has no interest in any unusual phenomena did see one of the objects.
