Strange light moving over Vegas at a great speed

At or about 10:40 PM while I was letting my dogs out for their nightly ritual I looked up into the sky to the north - northwest. I caught a glimpse of what appeared to be an airplane moving slowly across the sky, as it moved over head I then thought it was a satelite due to the extreme altitude and that the light never blinked. Just after the light passed directly over head it increased to a speed four times faster as it headed south. It made no sound, left no contrail As I moved out away from my house to keep sight of it, 2 airforce jets flying in a tight formation flew north to where I first spotted the light, then turned south hard towards the objects flight path. I ran through the house and out the back door the object was pulling away from the jets at an incredible rate. The jets broke off and headed back north. I have lived in Las Vegas for 13 years and I have been to the edge of Area-51 and seen things in the sky that I could not explain but never have I seen something fly over the city and display speeds of this nature. This object was at an incredible altitude and the speed was remarkable. Can satelites increase their speed? Did anyone else see this?
