2 BLACK OBJECTS SLOWLY TUMBLING ACROSS SKY PERFECTLY SPACED APART

MYSELF AND A CO-WORKER WERE STANDING ON THE DOCK @ MY JOB LOOKING WEST @ THE SETTING SUN WHEN I NOTICED 2 BLACK OBJECTS AT ABOUT 20,000 FEET SLOWLY MAKING THERE WAY FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST. WE OBSERVED A COMMERCIAL JET PASS ABOVE THEM AND THAT'S HOW I ESTIMATED THEIR DISTANCE. MAYBE THE SIZE OF PENCIL TIP @ ARMS REACH, THEY STOOD OUT AGAINST THE CLEAR SKY. IT WAS HARD TO TELL, BUT THEY APPEARED TO KEEP PERFECT DISTANCE(ONE SLIGHTLY HIGHER THAN THE OTHER) AND THEY SEEMED TO ALMOST TUMBLE AS THEY SLOWLY MOVED. I WATCHED THEM TILL THEY WERE BACK OVER THE BUILDING OUT OF MY LINE OF SIGHT. THEY WERE DEFINATELY NOT PLANES OR HELICOPTERS OF ANY KIND-JUST ROUND, BLACK, TUMBLING OBJECTS. I SERVED IN THE US ARMY MILITARY POLICE CORPS AND HAVE BEEN TRAINED ON OBSERVING AERIAL OBJECTS. HAVEN'T SEEN THESE BEFORE.
