I heard a loud aircraft sound.Looked up and saw two very large unidenified aircraft. flying very slow, very low,and very close together.

The airplanes flew overhead, and I could see normal wings,tail,and body. Unusual though were lights on the right side of both aircraft. There seemed to be band of lights on the body of the aircraft,not like a passenger plane. I could not make out any markings that would Identify the planes. They moved like airplanes we have seen at air shows, like B17s. They were flying from the south, along Elliot bay toward the north. From where I was standing they looked like they were slightly banking to the left toward the san juans. After looking up I looked around and notice someone acrose the street taking notice of the aircraft as well.
