Satellites searching area before and after 2 chevron UFO 's were seen.

I'm a video technician presently employed at the D.A. s office. My duties are to document crime scene evidence and statements from defendents.This is actually my second UFO sighting,in June 1982 on a clear sunny day I was walking with my older brother who is also an ameteur astronomer. We saw a large cylinder shaped metallic object approximately 150 ft in length hovering about 10,000 ft. The UFO made no sound, it just floated for about 2 minutes, it then became smaller in size and began moving north. We lost sight of it. On 6/3/00 at about 11:30pm my wife returned from having dinner. I stood at the window looking out at the harbor and the New York skyline. We have a pretty good view from our top floor apartment and could see for miles. The evening was cool and the night sky was clear. I looked up at the big dipper and saw a small object like a star moving north to south across the big dipper. I thought it could have been a satellite and I wanted my wife to see it, however the object vanished. About 15 minutes later a second object appears inthe same area also moving north to south. At this point I was already on the fire escape with my binoculars. Unfortunately for my wife she was already in the shower. I sat patiently looking up at the night sky for about another 15 minutes, then saw 2 chevron shaped UFO's circuling next to the dipper.They stopped and faced eachother then continued circuling. I remember thinking that these had to be birds flying around at night but when I looked at them through my binoculars I saw 2 boomerangs slowly circuling in the sky. I immediately became exited and had to rub my eyes to make sure I was not seeing things. I watched these objects for a few seconds, they were a dull biege color with a soft brownish glow or haze, One of the UFO'S was wider then the other and looked more like a large hand glider while the other object had a much more alien appearance to it. They had no lights or windows though they appeared to reflect some light. It was difficult to determine s! ize beca use they were dull however when looking at them through my binoculars I could tell that they large objects, probably 100 to 150 ft wide and hovering about 10,000 ft up.I realized that I had to get my wife to see this. I began knocking on the bathroom door pleading for her to come out and see these things. she came out but they had already dissappeared. Together we continued watching for about another 15 -20 minutes.Then we observed a third satellite moving in the opposite direction across the dipper. That night I couldn't sleep thinking about what I saw. The next morning we talked about it and decided that what we saw were either real extraterrestrial crafts coming in from space circuling over the city and then moving back out to space or military satellites trying to track the two chevron UFO's. What's also strange is that this incident occurred exactly 18 years after the first one and for the past few weeks prior to the second sighting I've been getting this feeling that I was going to see something again. Could we be right about what we saw and have other people had similar feelings prior to seeing a UFO?
