Jet chasing spherical metallic craft

Just before the sun was beginning to dim on this summer night,.me and three others witnessed a fighter jet in the sky making a rapid straight ascent right in front of us. We were a few hundred feet north of delaware street in the parking lot of the elementary school there in this real small town of 3000. When we examined the sky a bit more, we noticed that upwards and to our left was a shining silver sphere with no visible markings. The temperature of the craft seemed to be much different than the atmosphere because there was a mirage around the whole thing in the clouds, just like a jet' s rocket. Once this jet got to the altitude of the craft it headed straight for it, but alas could not keep up.

I'm guessing this lasted for 2 minutes and we saw the jet remaining in the sky for a minute or so after the craft was out of sight. I estimate the craft was only fifteen feet in diameter and looked exactly like a giant BB.
