Bright white sphere traveled across Albuquerque sky

I noticed a bright white light that never changed brightness, traveling in straight line across Albuquerque evening sky, while in my backyard with friends. Best guess is it traveled from the west to southeast almost right over Albuquerque airport, speed approximatly 400-500 MPH, elevation 25,000-30,000 feet, skattered clouds. I've seen many objects in the sky but none like this bright white light. As it progressed across the sky it did pass under an airliner which was at about 40,000 feet heading southwest with visable colision lights, unlike the white light. After the light passed the eastern mountains of Albuquerque the light just dissappered. No pictures or video. I'm in the USAF with lots of aircraft identification experience.
