UFO sighting in Kansas City - two craft exit a larger craft

I was at my mother's house staying the night with her when I awakened at 3:47 AM and had a nagging feeling to go outside and look up. I did and shortly after steeping out on the back patio I saw a white round shaped object traveling from the North East to the South West almost straight overhead - maybe 15 degrees off of vertical. The night sky was clear with a few scattered wispy clouds and stars were clearly visible. The object appeared to be a satellite, but I thought it as a little large to be a satelling and though it might be the space station. It was traveling fast but was very high up so it took a while to move accross the sky. I first noticed it when it was approximately 45 degrees up from the horizon. I and watched it travel along a straight line until it was approximately 30 degrees from the horizon. The thought that it could be a UFO came into my mind and I thought "Well, if you are something not of this world then show me a maneuver so I know for sure." I really wasn't expecting it to do anything as I was still sure it was a man-made craft. At that point I was just about to turn around and go back into the house when it started wavering, then stopped dead and immediately (one second) went back the same direction it came from. I remember thinking "satellites don't do that." The object traveled a short distance then stopped. Two smaller objects came out of it and moved downwards, one to the right and one to the left in an upside down V pattern. I kept my eyes on the larger object and watched as it faded out as if moving away from the earth out into space. It was too far away to tell exactly what it was doing. I did not find the other objects in the sky after that and don't know where they went. The time on the clock when I returned was 4:05. I locked the patio door and pulled the drapes but was a little ancy about going to sleep after that.
