Dark gray colored object with two big circles on the side

I was out fishing with my two younger brother-in-laws when they were looking up in the sky and saw a jet liner fly overhead and asked me what the trails were coming out from behind it were and I told them that they were from the water in the jet fuel turning to vapor and reacting with the cold air like cars do in winter. They said it wasnt cold out so why were they showing up? I told them the higher you go the colder it gets. That is ho you can tell if a jet is real high or if it is low. We then saw a smaller crat (UFO) that appeared to be higher than the jet. The jet was flying west and the smaller craft was heading north and it crossed behind the jet. I thought it was kind of weird for a small plane to be that high and continued to watch it. I was steering the boat we were on and turned to make sure we werent going to hit anything and turned around and looked to continue to watch it and didnt see it anywhere. The craft wasn't flying mach 1 or anything like that so it couldn't have flown out of sight. The jet was still visible but yet the other object had seemed to just disappear. The object was dark gray in color, cigar shaped, and it looked like it had two big circles on the side. There was no contrail behind it.
