2 different objects seen in Louisiana

I actually saw 2 separate objects this night. They were actually at 2 different times. Also I need to point out that I live close to an air force base. There are times when I've seen obvious unknown military planes and one would suspect these as being "UFOs". As we all know, not everything seen can be said to be from another planet.

The first object i saw was in the middle of a large amount of air traffic. I was in the backyard taking my dog out and happened to noticed how much air traffic was flying over. There are several distinctive paths where the airlines fly and over the years I've come to know where in they sky they usually are. There was plane after plane. Probably about 5 minutes apart in sightings. All of a sudden there was this one object that came across the sky in a totally odd flight path. It had lighting like what you see when several windows of a commercial plane is glowing. There was probably 8 double windows down the side. It sort of had a banana shape to it actually. There were no other lights. No red blinking light underneath. No landing geat lights either. Just these lights. It seemed to hold some reflection from the ground as there was a slight glow. Not a glow as if it were from the object, but just reflected up from the ground. It didn't really have a feel that it was flying straight either. I got a sense of a "tumbling" while watching it. It went over in an "S" shape too. It came from the north flying southwest, then southeast, then back southwest. It was wide curves and not sudden direction changes. I couldn't say there was no sound either as there was still many other planes flying over.

The second object came a few hours later. I decided to go back out to see if I could see something else. Just something you do I guess when you see an object like that. Sort of a hope that you see it again I guess. As I was looking up I noticed a "star" out of place straight over head. I know the constellations pretty well so I knew this light shouldn't be there. About that time I noticed it was actually moving. It was really slow. Iwas traveling from the west heading East. It's the path that I generally see satellites when they are illuminated by the sun. I had thought that's what this was too, but it was moving so slow I felt that was worth ruling out. It kept travling the same path and became dimmer and dimmer as it move toward the Earth's shadow. It was just like a satellite in everyway, just extremely slow. The complete time of seeing this object would be around 12 - 15 minutes.

Both of these object could easily have other explainations rather than "UFO". They are UFOs though in the sense that I had no clue what they were. I don't think any other regular average person could have said either. But I thought this was worth reporting. I would have sent info in sooner but I had teken pictures of the first object and was trying to get something to show up. I used a digital camera and had the settings wrong. All I got was a blurry dim light in one photo and nothing in the others. I tried to increase the brightness and played with the contrast but was unable to get a shape. There wasn't anything worth sending with this report.
