Craft with bright white lights motionless over Southwest Washington D.C.

I was walking to my job at the Federal Government this morning from Smithsonian Metro. I was approaching the crosswalk and stopped because I had to wait for the light to change. I looked up in the clouded gray sky in the distance and noticed what looked like bright white lights. They were motionless at first. At first I thought it was one of those posts of lights simular to those at a ball park or construction site. Then the second thing I thought of was a plane, since this area is not far from Reagan National Airport. The craft, or what I could see of it was motionless. I could not get a closer look because I was stuck at the intersection. It started to move and drifted slowly behind the trees before I could start walking again. I noticed that the planes that are taking off from the airport this morning are no longer lit up since it is now the day time. A plane would not sit motionless like that. Helecopters tend to hover then move, but this was no helecopter, since it had the multiple bright white lights. The area where I saw the craft is also not far from the Pentagon. It could have been something military. I am not sure. I did not see it again. The area where it appeared to be hovering over was Maine Avenue. I was on the corner of 14th street and C street. The object was to the south near the bridge that crosses the Potomac River.
