strange bright lights fly over rural Maryland

While walking my two dogs on January 4, 2003 at 2050 hrs, in front of my house I noticed what looked to be a bright object in the sky over my neighbors house and assumed it was a shooting star. The object was moving from west to east at a steady pace then behind this object appeared three additional bright white light objects that would be the size of an egg held at arms lenght. The light from these objects was as if it was revolving. There was no color, just white light. then there were two other groups of the objects that appeared out of the western sky and flew east out of my sight. No sound was made and the distance in the sky seemed to be about 1500 feet high. They were close. I counted 15 objects, the flight pattern seemed to be in a straight line. I live two miles from the Westminster Airport and I'm used to seeing all types of flying craft, but at 46 years of age I've never seen anything like this before. I called my husband, who is a police officer for the State of Maryland and he tried to contact the local airport at 2100 hrs, but it was closed. We watched the news to see if anyone else reported the lights in the sky but to no avail.
