Duration:30 seconds
"reflective" white "tube" flying 100 ft or so under passenger plane during daylight.

Driving 422 West in afternoon. Noticed passenger jet in sky, had red and white paint with white words. This caught my attention, as it seemed lower than usual. Stopped my car in middle of intersection when i saw sunlight glint moving underneath jet, about 100 ft underneath. "reflection" followed exactly with jet but was 1/5th the size. Best I can say it was either a "steel pipe" shape or tube. Absolutly stunning, it moved with jet perfectly timed but definetly an object,as it moved it stopped reflecting sun, and I saw it had white color then it faded away. Cars honking behind me made me move. Pulled into parking lot of diner and looked back, could see passenger jet but not object. I watched for about 30 seconds. Broad daylight, great visibility that day. I would not be suprised if someone on that flight saw something. I almost don't believe this was real, but I stared again and again in that time to try and make out more, but it was mostly a bright "reflection", like shiny metal. However the object seemed white when the reflection of the sun died down. About the size of a automobile in relation to jet.
