My family and I were sitting in the outdoor spa when I heard a roar in the sky and my wife and daughter commented about a light in the sky. I looked up and was surprised to see a rocket like craft ascending into the sky. I have seen the U2 aircraft climb straight up and this craft did this. I am a Field Support Engineer for an aviation company and understand flying aircraft- this was a rocket headed for orbit as it flickered and became smaller with accompanying rocket sounds. During the event, we noticed a small light separate from the rocket and go towards the west- it appeared like sparks at first. I observed the rocket until it disappeared as it climbed, growing smaller. My wife then commented that there was a parachute up in the sky. I looked up and saw what I would characterize as a jet airplane going from north to south at a high rate of speed towards the north of my location. I followed the craft visually and determined that 1) it was moving at a high rate of speed and 2) was illuminated as a bright light - not like any aircraft I am familiar with. I began to track the craft and videoed it with my iPhone video. It sped to the south of my location and I videoed several clips. It then made a full circle maneuver in the sky and continued to the south. The light then disappeared. I reviewed the videos I took and was very surprised to see no view of the sky, but close up of the fence and grass. My daughter was in the hot tub behind me as I filmed and watched as I was filming this event and stated she saw the sky on my screen. What was recorded did not match what was seen. Videos attached.
