Sighted 2 "Boomerang"-Shaped objects over Northern Virginia (DC Area)

We were sitting on the deck drinking coffee. The sky was calm, clear, and starry. The EXACT latitude and logitude is Lat 38:54:XXX (deleted)) N, Lon 77:13:XXX (deleted))W. I looked up into the sky and saw two "boomerang"-shaped objects, approximately 40,000 feet and 1 mile apart. I told everyone else to look up. We all saw the objects. The objects flew in a straight path for a few seconds and then crossed paths (presumably going above and below each other). Then they straightened out and exited our field of vision. The objects were identifiable as "boomerangs" (totally lit in the sky). They had no recognition lights. They were not commercial airliners. They were not military fighters (wrong configuration and would not be totally lit). I have worked on military aircraft in the past and know their configurations and characteristics. Did anyone else see what we saw?
