Black hovering triangle in Germantown, MD

My friend and I were at a community pool, laying out tanning. I was looking up at the clouds and saw a small black triangle high up towards the clouds. It hovered for a few minutes far above us.

I told my friend, who looked and saw it as well. It stayed in the same place for about 2-3 minutes, and then slowly flew off to the right, taking a good 4-5 minutes to finally go out of our view.

It was definitely not a bird because we saw 2 birds while we were watching it and they glided faster than this object was flying. It was black, triangle, almost boomerang shaped, with either a reflective surface or lights that flashed.
