Double oval-shaped cigar shaped craft seen at high altitude, air traffic diverted

The sun was setting on the horizon near my house southwest of Denver. I frequently look up as I am an aviation enthusiast and am very observant of flight paths, and can identify any aircraft.

I started noticing something wrong when I saw a 737, an A320 and a 777 WAY off of the normal flight path into Denver International Airport. I kept looking up when I saw a craft flying at about 40,000 to 50,000 feet. It looked like two oval shaped cigars joined somehow. When I first saw it, I thought it was wreckage from some type of mid-air catastrophe due to its strange way of moving, but realized it was something else when it continued northbound in the sky for about 10 minutes. The way it flew looked like something tumbling, yet in control. Like it was rolling in all directions while still flying in a straight, coordinated manner. I am an extreme skeptic, and usually write-off UFO sightings as military craft, or natural phenomena. But, what I saw was not earthly. I know alot about aviation, and nothing, I repeat NOTHING can fly like that. It was black, and gave off a glare from the sun's reflection.
