On Saturday, January 30th, 2016, at 2:30pm, in Rockville, Maryland, I was standing on the subway platform (Metro's Red Line) waiting for the subway going into the direction of Washington D.C. The weather was a clear day, with barely any clouds, and bright blue skies overhead.

I was facing in the direction of the sun, when I noticed two small white/metallic objects about 30 to 40 degrees below and equidistant to the sun (This is my best estimates). The objects were oval shaped maybe 1/10 to 1/20 the size of sun in comparison.

At first, I thought these were two small clouds, but I noticed that these were unusual looking since they had a "shiny metallic and reflective texture" for clouds. I turned to my friend to see if they saw it as well. They confirmed the two objects, and found them to be very strange in appearance. By the time I turned around to lend them my sun glasses to get a better view, the two objects had disappeared.

This whole incident occurred in a matter of seconds.

I am open to the idea that this could have been an atmospheric phenomena if someone could explain this, but for now, I feel these were two objects which were unidentifiable.
