strangest damn things I ever saw.

I was on Continental airlines flight 683 from Boston,Ma. to Houston, Tx.departure time approx.7:35 a.m. I was sitting on the left side of the aircraft(737-300)and just forward of the engine which was visible as i looked out my window.The weather was good with scattered clouds. while looking at the ground I observed what appeared to be two(2) aircraft approaching from below and moving from left to right.They were moving at a high rate of speed and as they got closer I realized something was not quite right.These objects were in a formation with one just to the right and behind the first.They had no wings,tail section,windows or markings of any kind,they were tube or cigar shaped and white in color.actually the color was more like a flourescent bulb that is turned off.Before they passed under us the second object made a right turn the likes of which i have never scene.I looked back for the other one and it too was on its way back.It made a kind of slow climb and then a slow dive as though it was floating rather than flying and they both disappeared behind my plane. At the time of this sighting I had been retired from the Boston Fire Department for about 7 months after 33 years of service.I am 56 years old.
