Dark spider-shaped objects seen flying over store - no sound, no lights

Two crafts were seen by me and my mother passing above Circuit City in Whitehall, PA. My mother was in the passenger seat of the car and I was in the back waiting for my father. The sun had just went down and it was dusk. My mother suddenly asked me "What are those? Are those birds?", and i glanced at the two objects flying in our direction and I just said "No, those aren't birds, they look like planes". Both the crafts moved like planes would and they were parallel to each other and dark in color with no lights. Then, as I continued to watch them pass overhead, I noticed the odd shape of the crafts. They were shaped like spiders, with a solid body in the middle and extensions from that in all directions. There were maybe 4 or 5 extensions. At that I became fearful of terrorism by another country, and my mother ran into the store to get my dad. By the time they came out it was too far away to see. I'll repeat that they moved like airplanes, in a straight line, but no sound was heard, and although it was becoming dark, there were no lights on the crafts and they were very dark in color. The unusual shape of the crafts scared us both.
