Extremely fast round metallic object with very erractic turns as it ascended.

Was a clear morning sky. We were westbound going to meet freinds to go golfing. As we approached Reading,Pa. we noticed a vapor trail that appeared to be vertical to approx. 15,ooo ft than appeared to take a 90 degree turn to the west. The vapor trail was straight up and down but the horizontal vapor trail changed direction several times in an erractic succession. Upon meeting our freinds they were baffled as to what they saw. They asked us if we saw the vapor trail. They were much closer to it than we were, in fact they were transferring golf clubs into another car in a parking lot when they saw what they described as a small round object launch extremely fast , as a rocket would launch, vertically.It than seemed to drop back towards them at which time it again rose very rapidly and than turned on a dime toward the west and quickly disappeared to the west. They described it as a round metallic object that was very hard to see due to its extreme speed. What was apparent was its vapor trail off of both sides of it. They also said it was extremely silent. The desciption of their sighting was exactly what we saw from approx. 10 miles away. We were hoping that someone else also had this sighting, as it was very strange indeed.What bothers me is when something this apparent is not publicized ,it seems others must have seen it also. I have never seen anything like it nor would I ever imagine ever witnessing anything so surreal.
