|Two tranclucent cirlces float over D.C.
I was locking the front door of the house with the family already waiting in the car.
I heard the low droning overhead of a large aircraft I looked up to see what type of plane it was. It was a C130 between 5000 - 7500' altitude heading West on climb out having departed from Andrews Air Force Base just across the Potomac River in Maryland. Nothing unusual, but then I noticed above the C130, at a higher altitude, around 30,000' two translucent white "round" objects on a North East heading. I would never noticed these objects had I not looked up at the C130. They actually intersected the path of the C130 at the moment I was looking, with the objects being higher up than the plane. As the plane continued on its western heading the two objects continued North East over D.C. and out of sight. The first object seemed to move steadily on its course. The second object seemed to be several hundred feet behind and moved in a manner as that of a child lagging behind a parent and not moving directly straight ahead, still keeping pace with the first object. The two objects appeared to be as large or larger than a commercial airliner and left no contrails. While I was watching this, a military jet at a much higher altitude 50,000'+ was heading in the opposite direction of South West. I used the military jet as a comparison in determining the size of the two circular objects. All craft just continued on their way without interuption. The sky was clear as a bell with visibility near unlimited. Winds were about 10 mph out of the South.
