Object seen floating over North West Las Vegas

While eating dinner on our backyard patio, my gilfriend was stretching in her chair, arching her back and looking up into the late afternoon sky. She pointed to the sky and asked "What is that?" Me and our friend looked to where she was pointing and saw a round object floating across the sky. It was flying very high, but below the cloud level. I ran into the house and grabbed some binoculars, came back outside and focused on the object. through the binoculars, I could see the front of the object was red, the rest was either silver or white. I pased my girlfriend the binoculars and she saw it. then she handed them to our friend who also saw it. It seemed to be "barrel-rolling". I got the binoculars back to look at it, and it disappeared. I scanned the sky for a few seconds before I saw it again, but it was all black. I ran through the house to the front yard, but lost sight of it again. When I went back to the back patio, we were asking each other "What was that?" Then I pointed out 2 F-15's flying in the direction the object went. They were followed by an F-16 and 2 more F-15's.
