Objects seen after WTC disaster in calm NEW YORK sky.

I was aprehensive about placing this report until I read some of the others, that seem to me may have been the same or a similar sighting. I was sitting on my couch one day, watching TV, and happened to look out my window. From my window I can see the East side of Manhatten, I am directly across from the United Nations building. In any case I saw what appeared to me at first to be birds flying. Like seagulls, when they just kind of float in the air. Their movement was like that two objects just kind of circling each other ove and over. It occured to me after a few seconds how high they were in the air. I got up to get a closer look, and sure enough they were not birds. My second though was military planes, like an F-14. This was in and around the time they were still patrolling over the City. But because of the movement, I would have to rule that one out too. They managed to saty there for about 10 minutes appearing and disappearing, reflecting light of some type of metallic surface. They were so far up it was hard to get a good read on its surface properties.
