Two Unidentified Objects exit Earth's Atmosphere at Physically Impossible Speeds

Two Friends, along with myself, were sitting on a picnic bench smoking a cigarette over by the Parc at Dulles Apartment complex. I was observing the skies as it was a completely clear night and the area does not see many stars due to light pollution. I was fixated on two lights in the sky in particular when they started moving. Initially, I thought that they were planes, but one object started to glow very brightly with white light. These objects were travelling at approximately 120 miles per hour. The object closest to the atmosphere started to dissipate and finally vanished. The second object was still bright at this point but started to get dim. Once it dimmed it came to an immediate halt, waited a second or two, and shot off toward space, with seemingly dull red "taillights" on what i assume was the back of the craft. I have never seen something violate the laws of physics as in this instance. I spotted the Lights in the southern region of the ! sky and watched as they traveled toward and disappeared over the western sky. I am unsure of what it was flying through the sky that night, but I CAN tell you that I have lived next to airports my whole life, being able to identify civilian, commercial and military craft without question. This was none of these things. No sound, very strange maneuvers. They were about 1 to 1.5 miles high, about 2 miles away from my location.
