Two rectangular prism crafts sighted in Saint Paul, MN

My wife and I were driving through Saint Paul, heading west on highway 36. As we were crossing the Rice Street exit, we saw 2 black rectangular prism shapes in the sky to the south. There are a few airports in the area, so planes are constantly flying overhead. We both asked out loud, "What is that?"

As we looked closer, we noticed the crafts were extremely low - I'm guessing less than 1,000 feet. They were larger than a plane (I'd estimate twice as big in each dimension - length, height, width).

The crafts, originally appearing to move southeast, turned counter clockwise and headed northwest. They moved slowly. By this time, the two crafts were moving directly over our vehicle. It was evening, so the sky was darker.

I tried looking for dark shapes extending off the objects to indicate wings; I might have just assumed it was a plane had I seen them, but there was only the rectangular prism shape. One craft flew with its body oriented diagonally, while the other was straight length-wise.

Both objects had a short line of lights on the bottom. I vaguely recall a few white lights and a blue light: A line of 2-3 white lights, then a blue light, followed by another white light. The lights did not blink.

As they flew over us, they separated. One flew more north and the other headed northwest. I pulled off the Lexington exit and stopped in a parking lot to take another look in their direction, but they were no longer in sight.
