Star like UFO

As I jumped out of my vehicle I noticed a brighter than usual star in the sky directly northeast. At first it looked like a star but as I concentrated on it, it immediately ( like it knew I had spotted it ) shot back directly ( directly opposite my line of vision ) up into the atmosphere at a high rate of speed. When I first noticed it it appeared to be ( best guess ) 2,000 - 3,000 feet altitude ( just hovering silently ) and when it shot back it appeared to leave the earths atmosphere and diguise itself as a star. As I continued to watch it it began to move again in a half circle ( clockwise 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock ) and sped off at a unbelievable speed ( North ) until it had disappeared. Just as it had disappeared another bright light shot in a westerly direction just as fast from the same area. I immediately looked at my watch and it showed 11:12 pm and I desperately wanted another I witness but as I looked round there was no one else just the silence, no wind just the cold ( approximately -32 C). This sighting bothered my for approximately 5 months afterwards. Please tell me this was a military test ( holographic light from a satellite maybe ? ) If it was it was totally realistic and nervewracking. I have actually found a video mpeg on the internet of another sighting which is pretty much what saw ( dec27.mpeg a sighting from someone else made on Dec.27, 1997 )
