I was sitting in my backyard enjoying a beautiful morning. While looking up at the sky,I thought I was looking at a white plastic garbage bag initially blowing in the atmosphere by the way it was moving and responding to the wind. As I watched it for a few minutes I came to realize it couldn't be a plastic bag because it was moving slowly and with intention to the East and bags just didn't move this way. It was shaped similar to a boomarang, white/silvery in color. When it first came into view it seemed to be about 2-300ft high and almost cruising. I starred at it for about 2-3 minutes before I ran into the house to get my mother, we came back out and was able to locate it immediately. By this time it had moved slightly farthur to the east and upward. It had to be about what I consider 6-700 feet high at this time. The white/silvery color stood out against the clear blue background of the sky. And was no longer heading east, but straight up. It got to a really high altitude and kind of came to a stand still for a period of about 4 minutes then increased in speed really fast and shot out of eye sight for a while. My mother and I screamed and jumped up and down, we couldn't believe what we just saw. Eventually after about 5 minutes she went back into the house, I stayed outside hoping to see it again. About 5 more miutes went by and I kept scanning the area, I saw it and another reappear much farthur to the east, but not as high. They continued to travel southeast in a pair until they went out of my view. It took about 1 minute.
About 2-3 minutes after they disappeared I noticed 2 fighter jets hauling butt in the direction in which they were traveling. I assume they were trying to track them.
