saucer shaped object intercepted by 2 military jets

I had just got out of my truck in the Sears parking lot when I heard jets very high. You always hear jets in Anchorage, but not real high. I looked up and saw two military jets from Elmendorf Airforce base traveling S.E. at a very high altitude, traveling very close together. Could barley make out jets shape, estimate 50,000 feet. I looked ahead of where they were going and saw a large circular ojbect, shining like a star, motionless in the sky. As the jets approached it they separated. One went left around it, the other went right then came back closer together after they passed it. The object stayed put and didn't move. The jets continued on S.E. and dissappeared above clouds. Watched object for about 2 minutes more, then it took of at super high speed north, dissappeared in less than 5 seconds. The jets came back but couldn't find it.
