Rocket-like UFO

Early evening, I noticed a cloud formation shaped like a angled rip suddenly appear. Within 20-30 seconds the top of the rip stretched until it was nearly double.

I couldn't stop staring and I'm glad I didn't because out of nowhere a rocket-shaped object without any visable propulsion system appeared beneath the cloud "rip". It was smooth and round on the head of the ship and elongated and tapered off at the bottom in a rounded point. Strange wings were located on either side (which looked almost like upside-down versions of the ship itself) and were strangely detached but moving with the ship regardless.

The UFO was completely silent.

The ship speedily moved up and through the rip and then proceeded beyond it but seemed to be dissolving once it had cleared the cloud, and was gone in 2-3 seconds.

No more than half a minute later, 2 government jets passed nearly over the rip and proceeded on. 10 minutes later a strong wind started blowing (Not even a breeze beforehand) and blew for maybe 15 minutes before dying down completely.
