Stick shaped UFO moving slowly at a very high altitude North East over Northern NJ

Standing on my roof deck at dusk, I heard a strange bird sound. It's a sound I've heard before around the same time of day, so I began to look for the bird. I think its some type of falcon, because the times I've seen it its been very high and then will dive quickly and be out of site in seconds.

I could not find the bird, but I looked North (approx) at about a 75 degree angle and saw a very visable black line with what looked like a tail. As I observed the object I realized it wasn't moving. Looking a little longer I realized it was moving slowly backward, but was very very high in the sky.

I then told my neighbor to look and she saw it and immediately said it was a plane as well. Then she was surprised as well to see it was m0ving backward. At this point I ran inside and grabbed my binoculars. Finding the object, It was clearly NOT airplane, balloon, or anything else I've heard could be spotted. It looked like a stick, with one end, shorter and turned upwards. It had a slight bow in the long section. As I watched it it moved slowly North East and then dissappeared from site. At one point it changed shape from the previously described stick, to a full half circle or bow shape. It could have been the angle I was seeing it from.
