2 black hovering objects...approx 10k ft high..

Cooking on the grill in the yard. Thought I saw a black spot in my eye but after looking again, I ran inside and got my binoculars. I immediately saw clearly 2 objects, at the same height and seperated about 1 inch in my view. They were hovering stationary with a VERY slow movement to the west. From where I live, they were approx at a degree heading of 250deg( just slight north of my Dish which is at 240deg. I observed them, and had my 21 year old son also confirm the sighting with the binoculars. The objects were just barely visable without the 8x50 binos. We were both very convinced what we saw was not something natural.My best guess is that they were somewhere over the Watchung or Scotch Plains NJ towns. We were truly amazed as they 2 objects displayed some kind of unstable motion while hovering. They were clearly not balloons or airplanes. They disappeared into a cloud 15 minutes later. The really weird part is that what appeared to be a military style small jet, with 2 engines on the body between wings and tail appeared and circled the area 2 times and then in the reverse direction. My wife also witnessed the jet and it appeared that they either were observing or trying to locate the 2 objects that we saw.
