Shape: Other
Duration: 1-2 minutes
2 objects moving together across the sky during the day.

I was on the roof deck sometime late afternoon. The sun was starting to set but there was still plenty of light out. I happened to look up and saw 2 shapes in the sky. I was looking toward the DE river, with the Philadelphia skyline to my left.

There were 2 objects moving right to left across the sky. They did not appear to change speed or elevation, or their position in relation to each other. They moved across my field of view over the course of about 1-2 minutes. I did not know how big they were so I could not judge how far away they were.

The first object was sort of in the shape of an E with the E facing down at the ground. It did not change orientation at any time. The second object was in the shape of an elongated cylinder that was oriented horizontally relative to the ground. It did not change orientation either.

Both of the objects were the same color... I would describe it as a brushed stainless steel... there was no appearance of a polished finish.

They did not behave like balloons. They moved with very little change in elevation, and did not appear to move with the breeze.
