3 lights hovering in Virginia

At around 7:45 on December 1, 2011, I went outside my house to get firewood. I head a noise that sounded similar to a low flying airplane. It almost sounded like a whale call. I looked up and saw 3 low-flying lights moving very slow. I turned around and called for the other 2 people inside (my brother and his girlfriend). They came outside immediately (took about 15 seconds), it was already roughly a half mile away. It hovered for about a minute and a half before it moved out of site. In roughly 2 minutes what looked to be several military airplanes headed in the same direction. I called my grandmother at this time and could hear an echo in my phone. We tried to get on the internet on our phones and it did not work, there has never been an issue getting on the internet in this area before. We live about a half hour from Dulles Airport, we see airplanes all day, everyday, and this did not look or sound like anything we have ever seen or heard before.
