Circular solid, semi-transparent glowing off-white circular shape zipped through the sky, stopped suddenly without slowing, went up

We were riding in the Delaware/Pennsylvania valley (back roads) when we saw an odd object in the sky. we stopped to look at it. It zipped in the sky in a very weird angle. almost like a ~ . It was moving really fast and all of the sudden stopped, sat there for a second or two and then shot straight up vertically.

We then saw a number of what looked like jets in the distance each direction coming towards the UFO. We were at the intersection of Smith's Bridge Road and Brandywine Creek Road. (On google maps, it is 901 Smith's Bridge Road)It was at about a 90-100 degree angle in the sky. The UFO was a solid glowing off-white in color and seemed semi-transparent on the lower portion. It had red circular lights on the bottom, but no blinking lights like a normal plane.
