i was out in the smoking area at the local hospital. several hospital employees noticed object in the sky.

i had shoulder surgery that day, and if i'd been by myself, might have discounted it. but i was out in the smoking area with friends who'd come to visit, as well as there being several hospital employees in the area. we were at southwest washington medical center when i heard several people exclaiming about a strange object in the sky. it looked like two parachutes stuck together without anything hanging below. it hovered over the parking lot about a hundred feet up in the air, then it slowly turned northwest and glided soundlessly away and out of was a flat black in color and sort of bommarang shape.
