Hate to burst any bubbles, but these are almost certainly flying ants.
This is the exact time of year when expanding ant colonies start sending out reproductive ants, aka flying ants, in large swarms to start getting
busy. What your looking at is a few ants from a swarm that simply got caught up in the storm and onto the windshield.
Ironically, flying ants are terrible at flying. They usually prefer sunny weather with high humidty. The unpredictable nature of late April weather
in Oklahoma means that these little guys are certainly going to get caught up in a lot of storms due to their poor flying ability.
For all of you seeing thrusters out there: those things certainly do look like thrusters. Totally understandable!
The reality is that it's an illusion created by wind and the fact that these ants have 4 large wings. The wind is simply blowing on these wings and
it's creating the illusion of thrusters shooting off into various directions. The wings trail behind ants. Light is being filtered through the
translucency of the wing and creating a glowing effect.
Very fun video to analyze. Nice find
