    Two others are barely visible below it, and the fourth is extremely faint at the bottom. They are evenly spaced apart. This photo was taken by my son, and I also took several photos, but the lights were completely invisible to my camera.

      is the moon with Venus just below.

      I just check the Western sky using Stellarium which you can download for free and see for yourself.

      Here's the link.

        are also in the picture. They are below and to the right of Venus at that particular place/time.

        So you have three planets in the darkening sky along with the Moon and some brighter stars.

        I don't know if that fits with what you saw of course, but the right place to start is with some Planetarium software.
