Unknown "W" shaped objects

My friend and I were sitting on a bench by the north lake in Woodbridge. It was dark, but there were low clouds and you could see pretty well under them, because of the reflection of the city lights. I saw at first what appeared to be smoke or two balloons. The color was dark brown or black. After about a minute or so it became apparent that they were something different. The way they moved was unusual. I told my friend to look at them. I thought that maybe these were birds flying in formations. When the objects got closer to us it became obvious that they were not birds. They were moving very gracefully, almost like two giant pterodactyls. They were not moving their “wings”, but hovering and did not make any sound. My friend got a little scared and asked me what I think these things are. She is a strict Christian and does not believe in UFOs or anything like that. After about a minute the fist object disappeared. We were staring at the second one and when it got closer we could see its form. It looked like the letter “W”. It continued getting closer and then vanished. I think the closest it got was about a mile or so. We waited for a few minutes to see if they will “reappear”, but nothing happened.

I do not know exactly what we saw. They were either giant birds similar to the pterodactyls or some kind of crafts.
