Brief sighting of globular object at extremely high altitude and speed entering and then leaving atmosphere.

Object was viewed at an extremely high altitude traveling at an incredible rate of speed, much like the speed of the space shuttle when viewed flying on approach as it enters the atmosphere. It appeared in my view directly overhead at 12:00 o'clock position and continued East Souteast in a straight line and then appeared to leave the atmosphere and I lost sight at that moment. It was difficult to view precisely the objects shape but it appeared somewhat globular. Briefly after viewing the UFO, another aircraft of recognizable shape appeared in the same area at an oblique angle of interception, heading East Northeast. That's all I saw. At first I thought I was seeing a large satellite but satellites don't leave the atmosphere, do they?
