While driving to work this morning we saw an unusual object in the sky...

My husband jokingly commented about all the vapor trails in the sky. As we looked up we both noticed a silver/reflective object in proximity to an airplane we had been watching. The plane was obviously moving to the west and leaving a big billowy trail, while the object to its north seemed staionary in relationship to the plane and did not have a trail. I pulled to the side of the road and we watched. The plane moved on but the silver object seemed to not be moving. Then a little wisp of cloud passed in front of it. We waited to see if it would reappear, but it did not and the cloud floated on. The sky was basically clear and bright blue. There is no way to tell how big the object was, but it seemed to be close to the same size as the plane. the plane.
