On 12/25/00 I witnessed a boomarang shaped object traveling quite fast in the sky, it's shape defined only by it's glowing white light

Dec. 25th 2000.....seen by homemaker/housewife Around 6:30pm that evening as I was just about to go in after having just filled my bird feeders for the following day in my back yard, I noticed out of the corner of my eye something unusual in the sky. This object was not a plane, it was not clouds(the sky was clear at that time), it was not the smoke from my neighbors chimney or a falling star(meteor)and it was not a flock of birds flying in formation(although the latter did crosss my mind at first because of the formation it was in but it was traveling much too fast). What I saw was something shaped roughly like a boomarang, it made no sound, left no trail in the sky and the only thing that defined it's shape was what seemed to be dots of white light, several rows of them. It wasn't light like starlight or streetlight or any light I have ever seen, it was just white dots of light, glowing white dots. It seemed to be traveling northwest to southeast at the time I saw it and I watched it till the tree branches obscured it and it disappeared over the housetops. It's shape never fluctuated from this boomarang formation. I stood there saying to myself, "what the @#&* was that?", and would have probably just left it at that but as I was standing there contemplating what it was I just saw I noticed this same shaped object with the white light further down the horizan. It was further south closer to the downtown area of the city(Buffalo) and now seemed to be traveling east to west till it disappeared. This thing was so strange I probably would have talked myself out of believing I had seen what I had just seen if I had not seen it twice. After I saw this object the second time further down the horizan I stayed out for probably another 10 minutes or more searching the sky for this thing till my toes were getting numb before going in. I don't know what it was that I saw that night but I do know what it wasn't and I'm wondering if there were any other reports in the Buffalo, Western NY area regarding this strang object close to the time I saw it?? Thanks
