Three Cruise ship-shaped objects viewed on descent to BWI airport, Baltimore Maryland

While approaching BWI airport on flight 1515 Southwest Airlines I observed three objects, approximately 10 degrees above the skyline. Two were parallel to each other, and the third was just a little below the two. They were shaped similarly to vacation cruise ships, albeit much longer and more slender, and because of the perspective, must have in actuality been a lot larger, certainly much larger than the plane I was in. Many other passengers were looking out the window, presumably at the objects, because on most flights I take, I don't see many people watching out the window during the landing. No one commented on the objects.

At the time I thought I must have been seeing some weird reflection, or some lit up building that was resting on a low mountain or hill but they really were too solid and distinct to have been some oddity of the light, and the Baltimore/D.C. area doesn't have mountains to say the least. They were subtlely lit.

My mind totally tried to rationalize what I saw, because they weren't like any common aircraft at all. When I first glanced at them I thought they were other planes coming in to land, but I soon realized that they were too long and far too large, only their distance made them seem momentarily comparable in size to our aircraft.

Only upon seeing an image of a reported UFO seen around 3am over Washington, D.C. on the Coast to Coast am site did I decide to make this report. The objects I saw were very similar to that image, although I saw three of them and from further away. So they looked more like huge, long cruise ships, and less like the lighted cigar-shaped object pictured on the main page of the website.
